Little Shop of Horrors takes you on a musical journey through the streets of Skid Row to a struggling flower shop where a blood-thirsty plant from another world is eagerly awaiting its next victim. Seductive, tragic and full of delightfully demented humor, this campy classic is an onstage homage to the dark comedy genre. One of the longest-running shows in off-Broadway history and the winner of several Best Musical awards, the musical is based on Roger Corman's B-movie and was later made into an Academy Award-nominated film starring Rick Moranis and Steve Martin. A co-production with 5th Avenue Theatre, the show's '50s and '60s doo-wop, rock and Motown-style score includes such favorites as "Skid Row," "Somewhere That's Green," "Feed Me" and "Suddenly Seymour."

I read the play before seeing the show, and I didn't quite get it. I then went to the show hoping to glean more meaning from it seeing it live, and I still didn't quite get the show. It seems like a modern take on "Our Town" (which I haven't read or seen a production of), but with more ennui. Actors were all top notch, but with a plot that I barely cared about (even with the random absurdist zinger here and there), it was not as engaging as I hoped it would be.
