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.

Reviews & Ratings
Not recommended for children under 8, unless they know the story and are very brave.
American Minister of the House of St. James, Hiram Otis, and his family have recently moved to Canterville Chase, a grand estate just outside of London, even though the previous owners made it quite clear to the family that the home was haunted. While the Otises are a practical lot and don’t believe in anything of a supernatural sort, a reappearing blood stain and the perpetual nocturnal visits of a rather noisy ghost with a taste for the theatrical convince them otherwise. Clearly the ghost is going to be driven mad by the very people he is desperately trying to haunt!
