In this horror, comedy, rock, sci-fi musical (with music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Howard Ashman – The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin) Seymour is a sad-sack, down on his luck florist shop employee who discovers a new breed of plant that he names Audrey II, after the co-worker he pines for. However, Seymour soon discovers that Audrey II, the R&B singing, carnivorous, other-worldy, foul-mouthed plant feeds on human BLOOD! This hilarious horror musical features well known musical theatre songs such as “Skid Row (Downtown)”, Suddenly, Seymour”, and “Somewhere That’s Green.”
