Directed by Jim Mammarella.
Little Shop of Horrors is an otherworldly musical satirization of sci-fi, b-grade movies set to the sounds of rock-n-roll, doo-wop, and mo-town.Seymour, a down-and out skid row floral assistant becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant with a mysterious craving for fresh blood. Soon “Audrey II” grows into an ill-tempered, foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore who offers him fame and fortune in exchange for feeding its growing appetite. In the Vex version, Audrey II comes alive as a seductive woman.
This romping musical by Ashman and Menken boasts “a gleeful 1960’s- pastiche score” that can be enjoyed by all generations. (New York Times)
