You are in for the thrill of a lifetime when you catch Little Shop of Horrors at Mercury Theater! This award-winning musical has entertained audiences for years, and you’re sure to learn why when you witness it for yourself on Friday, March 1st!
Winner of the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Musical, the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Musical, and the Outer Critics Circle Award, Little Shop Of Horrors has devoured the hearts of audiences around the world for more than 30 years, following the story of floral assistant Seymour Krelborn as he stumbles across a new breed of carnivorous plant that promises to grant him fame, fortune and all his desires – as long as the blood keeps flowing.
Assistant at Mushnik’s flower shop, orphan Seymour Krelborn is in search of an escape from his poverty-stricken life on an urban skid-row, and in love with his co-worker, Audrey. After obtaining a mysterious carnivorous plant, whom he names Audrey II, he discovers that it survives only by blood, and it quickly blossoms into a fully-fledged local attraction that propels the flower shop to success. But as the shop’s popularity grows, so does Audrey II’s hunger for blood, along with Audrey’s love for Seymour. Before long, Seymour discovers Audrey II’s extra-terrestrial roots and her ultimate desire for world domination.
