Musical comedy will be in full bloom with this perennially-popular, award-winning musical. Little Shop of Horrors blends doo-wop, rock, and Motown tunes into a charming and totally-twisted, monster hit. A strange and unusual plant seems like just the thing to save the troubled Skid Row flower shop and its unfortunate employees, Seymour and Audrey. But when that plant turns out to feed on human blood alone with plans of world domination…well, things get messy. With Grammy and Academy Award-winning songs, you’ll laugh and cringe at this darkly comedic horror musical.
