Lyrics and book by Howard Ashman
Music by Alan Menken
Based on the 1960 film by Charles B. Griffin
 

Returning to the Athens by popular demand, the horror-comedy-rock-musical Little Shop of Horrors is a hilarious spoof of 1950s sci-fi. Featuring music in the styles of early 1960s rock and roll, doo-wop, and early Motown, this tuneful and enormously entertaining story of monsters (both vegetative and human) makes hilarious fun of “science fiction, 'B' movies, musical comedy itself, and even the Faust legend” (Howard Ashman).  In this musical a ravenous flesh-eating plant demands, “Feed Me Seymour” in a warning that success often comes with “messy nasty strings,” and ultimately devours us, those we love, and our poignant vision of “somewhere that’s green.”

Awards include the 1982–1983 New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Musical, the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Musical, and the Outer Critics Circle Award.

This show runs 1 hour and 45 minutes with a 15-minute intermission
