It's everyone's favorite boy-meets-girl, plant-eats-world love story: Little Shop of Horrors. Take a musical journey through the streets of Skid Row to a struggling flower shop where a blood-thirsty plant from another world eagerly awaits its next victim. Seductive, tragic and full of delightfully demented humor, this long-running off-Broadway musical comedy is sure to deliver. Enjoy a night of bloody good fun with doo-wop inspired songs like "Skid Row," "Somewhere That's Green,"
"Feed Me" and "Suddenly, Seymour."
