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 based on Roger Corman's B-movie and was later turned into a Broadway show and an Academy Award-nominated film starring Rick Moranis and Steve Martin. Now the intimate Cupcake Theater stages this campy classic with book and lyrics from Howard Ashman and music by Alan Menken, the legendary team behind the scores for Disney's The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin. Enjoy a night of bloody good fun with doo-wop inspired songs like "Skid Row," "Somewhere That's Green," "Feed Me" and "Suddenly, Seymour." Learn More

I really enjoyed the play. The acting was great!
The only suggestion is that you have to get to the theatre at least 45 minutes early, due to the parking. There is only street parking and that could be a problem.
The theatre was very comfortable.
Award-winning film and television producer Gregory Sabatino collaborated with director Laura Henry on the play selection, choosing John Guare’s work for its power to provoke thought about current affairs in the United States, including the cult of celebrity, the war in Iraq, the treatment of those suspected of terrorism and the Patriot Act among others.
Starring as Artie in The House of Blue Leaves is Jack Conley (Traffic, Get Shorty, L.A._ Confidential, Fun with Dick and Jane, The Closer_, The West Wing, CSI, NYPD Blue among others). Francesca Casale (_World__ Trade Center_, City Slickers, Heartburn, Law and Order, The Equalizer and _General__ Hospital_ among others) stars as Bunny.
