The story follows a meek down-and out skid row floral assistant who becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant with a mysterious craving for fresh blood. 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, Little Shop of Horrors is an affectionate spoof of 1950s sci-fi movies which 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, who redefined the animated musical film with Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin.
Paul Garman, Musical Theatre West’s executive director/producer is, “pleased to present this delightful show with sets and costumes direct from the recent Broadway revival.”
Remaining performances are: Thursday, July 23 at 8pm; Friday, July 24 at 8pm; Saturday, July 25 at 2pm and 8pm; and Sunday, July 26 at 2pm.
Ticket prices for Little Shop of Horrors at the Carpenter Performing Arts Center range in price from $30 and $58 with special premium seating available ranging in price from $66 to $78 (first eleven rows center, subject to availability).
