Quotes & Highlights

The original off-Broadway production of Little Shop of Horrors played for 2,209 performances and more than five years at the Orpheum Theatre, winning 1983 Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding Musical and Outstanding Lyrics.


A black comedy favorite re-imagined specifically for the Boxcar Theatre Playhouse. Step outside (literally) onto skid row at 6th Street as Seymour, a poor, lonely flower shopkeeper, dreams of a better life and a place that’s green to share with the woman he pines for, Audrey. When a rare and exotic plant mysteriously appears, he finds the fame and fortune he was looking for, and a whole lot more. This carnivorous plant has a thirst for human blood, and Seymour is just the sap to get it.

With newly designed puppets representing the man-eating plant from outer space, this fast paced musical keeps you on your feet and your heart pounding.
