Little Shop of Horrors tells the story of a downtrodden nerd named Seymour Krelborn who lives in the basement of his workplace, Mushnikâ€™s Flower Shop in Skid Row. Mr. Mushnik treats Seymour like dirt, causing Seymour to bemoan his fate: â€œI keep askinâ€™ God what Iâ€™m for, And He tells me â€˜Gee, Iâ€™m not sure.â€™â€
The other employee at the â€œGod and customer forsaken storeâ€ is the blonde bimbo Audrey, with whom Seymour is hopelessly in love. Audrey secretly fantasizes about living a life with Seymour as her husband, but doesnâ€™t reveal her dreams because her boyfriend, a sadistic dentist named Orin Scrivello, D.D.S, wouldnâ€™t like it. For Seymour, everything is about to change. A strange and exotic plant he recently bought is beginning to blossom into something the likes of which no one has ever before seenâ€¦
This affectionate spoof of 1950â€™s sci-fi movies is a hilarious and side-splitting musical. This production features Dan Berger, Wendy Vogel, Ray Lebowski, Jay D. Benson, Tony Wright, Anna Futoran, Cicely Tutson, TeQuanna Colvin and Aretta Baumgartner.
