Charming, tuneful and hilarious! One of the longest-running off-Broadway musicals of all time, Little Shop of Horrors tells the story of a down-and-out skid row floral assistant who becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant with a mysterious craving for fresh blood. Soon “Audrey II” grows into an ill-tempered, tough-talking, R&B-singing carnivore who offers the florist fame and fortune in exchange for feeding its growing appetite, finally revealing its true self. Don’t miss the fun of Little Shop of Horrors! Starring Olivier Award-winner Lesli Margherita as Audrey.
