Take a doo-wop and Motown music-filled journey through the streets of Skid Row to a struggling flower shop where meek worker Seymour has discovered an exotic plant that makes him an overnight sensation. One problem: the plant apparently craves human blood. This campy classic -- one of the longest-running shows in off-Broadway history -- was based on a '60s B-film and later made into an '80s blockbuster starring Rick Moranis and Steve Martin. Relive delightfully dark tunes like "Somewhere That's Green" and "Suddenly, Seymour" as the nerdy-but-lovable underdog romances his sweetheart and fights the monstrous plant -- which, it turns out, is actually an alien intent on world domination.

We were amazed and awed by this show. The five, New York singers (3 we have seen on B'Way recently) are each outstanding and different; and yet they blend so well together in ensemble numbers. Focusing on the years 1930 and 1964, the show's Broadway selections mixes both the well-known and the now-forgotten.
It is too bad this in only here for a weekend and even worse that most people in the Bay Area will not venture to San Mateo to see it. But, for anyone loving Broadway, great songs, and Broadway history, this is a must-see.
