In this campy musical based on the 1960s cult horror film, nerdy Seymour, a florist’s clerk, buys and nourishes a Venus fly trap-like plant, which he names for his beloved co-worker Audrey. The plant ultimately grows big enough to devour everything in its path.
This thrilling new production stars Emmy® Award winner Tammy Blanchard (“Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows“), Tony Award nominee Jonathan Groff (Hamilton), and two-time Tony winner Christian Borle (Something Rotten!). Together they bring succulent new life to a show that has made three decades of theatergoers laugh, scream, and give up gardening for good. Featuring a book and lyrics by Oscar® and Grammy Award® winner Howard Ashman (The Little Mermaid), music by Oscar and Tony winner Alan Menken (Aladdin), and direction by Tony winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening), this LITTLE SHOP will bring you within biting distance of musical theater’s favorite man-eater.
Seymour is a down-on-his-luck florist with a crush on his co-worker Audrey. When he discovers a mysterious – and voracious – plant, suddenly Seymour and Audrey are thrust into an epic battle that will determine the fate of the entire human race.
