a sterling performance -- Bob Anthony
a welcome dose of hilarity and a foot-tapping good time. -- Brian Trompeter (Sun Gazette)
A down-and out skid row floral assistant becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant with a mysterious insatiable appetite. 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, finally revealing itself to be an alien creature poised for global domination!
One of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows of all time, this affectionate spoof of 1950s sci-fi movies has become a household name, thanks to a highly successful film version and a score by the songwriting team of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken. Charming, tuneful and hilarious, with tongue firmly planted in cheek, "Little Shop Of Horrors" never fails to entertain. This show is rated PG for suggestive themes (e.g domestic violence) and mild horror.
