Description

Broadway By the Bay presents Little Shop of Horrors, the smash Off-Broadway musical about a nerdy florist who makes a Faustian pact with a man-eating plant. An adaptation of Roger Corman’s 1960s film of the same name, composer Alan Menken and writer/lyricist Howard Ashman (Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin) set the man-eating plant down on Skid Row, with a trio of doo-wop divas singing the early Motown-inspired show-stoppers, such as “Skid Row (Downtown),” “Suddenly Seymour,” and the infectious title song. Twenty-two years after Corman’s B-movie classic (featuring the then unknown actor Jack Nicholson) debuted, Little Shop of Horrors became one of Off-Broadway’s longest-running shows, prompting a new movie version in 1986, directed by Frank Oz and starring Rick Moranis and Steve Martin.
