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.

Quotes & Highlights
“A marvelous piece of theatre as well as a great treatise on the nature of mankind which should take its place as a classic of dramatic literature.” Drama-Logue
“A work of passion and power.” Time Magazine
Set in a “pleasant woods on the outskirts of Geneva,” A Walk in the Woods by Lee Blessing begins as a Russian diplomat and his American counterpart meet informally after long, frustrating hours at the bargaining table.
As the seasons change and their talks continue, we begin to see an understanding develop between these two very different men—one seasoned, cynical and urbane, the other fervently idealistic about what can be achieved through perseverance and honest bargaining.Drama-Logue
calls it “a marvelous piece of theatre as well as a great treatise on the nature of mankind which should take its place as a classic of dramatic literature.” This long-running Broadway success, which Time Magazine called “a work of passion and power,” is intelligent, gripping and unexpectedly humorous.
