It was enjoyable, but a little dated. The performances were excellent.

Description

Book & Lyrics by Howard Ashman

Music by Alan Menken

Based on the film by Roger Corman, Screenplay by Charles Griffith

Seymour, a down-and-out skid row floral assistant, becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant with a unique craving. Soon the plant grows into an ill-tempered, R&B-singing carnivore who offers him fame and fortune in exchange for feeding its growing appetite. It turns out the plant isn’t just hungry and mean, it came from outer space on a mission to take over the world. This fun romp of a tale won the Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Musical.
