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.
