Based on a 1960 black comedy film, the Little Shop of Horrors musical centers on a hapless flower shop worker, Seymour, and his new exotic plant that happens to feed on blood. The mere presence of the plant in the window quickly brings traffic to the small shop, and the owner, Mushnik, promotes Seymour because of it. Seymour even finally catches the interest of Audrey, his coworker who's been stuck in a relationship with a sadistic dentist, Orin. All, it seems, because of the plant. Surely this Venus flytrap-esque thing will stay in its pot and not cause trouble as long as Seymour pricks his finger every now and then, right?
Soon the plant grows out of hand and grows insatiable, and Seymour's tasked with committing some heinous acts to satisfy its bloodthirst. Though he's horrified at the thought, he's not ready to give up the fame and love that Audrey II, which he's dubbed the plant, has given him.
Little Shop of Horrors is a rare musical, in that its Off-Broadway productions are perhaps more famous than its Broadway run, so it's no wonder that the show has blossomed at its latest Off-Broadway home since 2019. The world premiere of Little Shop of Horrors off-Broadway was in 1982, and librettist/lyricist Howard Ashman even declined to transfer the production to Broadway. The musical eventually made it there in 2003, receiving various awards nominations, but Little Shop of Horrors has remained most famous as an Off-Broadway staple, and a favorite of community theatres and schools. The musical also received its own film adaptation in 1986, which has become a cult classic.
