Little Shop of Horrors: Musical Info & Synopsis


Synopsis:

Little Shop of Horrors follows Seymour Krelborn, a downtrodden floral assistant, who discovers a carnivorous plant he names Audrey II. The plant quickly becomes the store’s main attraction, bringing sudden success to Seymour and the flower shop. The only catch is that Audrey II has an appetite for human blood, and as the plant grows, so does its demand for fresh victims. Little Shop of Horrors is a campy tale of ambition, love, and Faustian bargains.
