About the Event
Seymour Krelbourn, a florist's assistant, has his life turned around when he comes across an unusual plant after an eclipse of the sun. Naming the plant "Audrey II" after the salesgirl who is his love, Seymour tries to grow the plant, to no avail . . . until he discovers its true diet: blood. As the plant thrives, bringing Seymour fame and fortune, the two strike a Faustian pact: Audrey II agrees to attract publicity if Seymour continues feeding it. Seymour, his boss Mushnik, Audrey and her abusive dentist boyfriend are swept into the plant's evil machinations as its true motives become clear. Based on Roger Corman's film, Little Shop Of Horrors took off-Broadway by storm with its offbeat humour and the show-stealing Audrey II, whose rhythm and blues numbers never fail to bring down the house.
