It's time to head back to Skid Row as Alan Menken and Howard Ashman's musical hit Little Shop of Horrors has returned to New York! Starring stage favorite Gideon Glick as Seymour, two-time Tony nominee Tammy Blanchard as Audrey and two-time Tony winner Christian Borle as Orin Scrivello D.D.S this revival is not to be missed.
Tony winner director Micahel Mayer heads the production which features choreography from Ellenore Scott and design by Julian Crouch, the infamous flesh-eating plant Audrey II is designed by Nicolas Mahon!
Based on the 1960 'b movie' of the same name Little Shop of Horrors has become a huge cultural hit across the globe. With musical numbers like "Skid Row", "Suddenly, Seymour" and "Somewhere That's Green" the comedy musical garnered the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Musical, the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Musical AND the Outer Circle Critics Award during its debut off-Broadway run in 1982. After heading across the pond for its debut West End run in 1983, Little Shop of Horrors finally received its Broadway premiere in 2003, where it ran at the Virginia Theatre (now the August Wilson Theatre) for 40 previews and 372 regular performances!
As the dejected Seymour languishes in the floral shop on the down-and-out street of Skid Row he discovers a strange new plant... Affectionately naming it "Audrey II" after his crush at the shop, Seymour is shocked to find that his unusual plant has developed a soulful singing voice, a potty mouth, and an unquenchable thirst for human blood.
As Audrey II grows bigger and bigger, and its thirst for blood becomes unrelenting, the carnivorous plant promises a lifetime of fame and fortune to Seymour, as long as he continues providing a fresh supply of the red stuff. Just when it's too late, Seymour discovers Audrey II's extra-terrestrial origins and its drive for complete world domination.
