Little Shop of Horrors is a campy, dark musical comedy with a science fiction twist featuring book & lyrics by Howard Ashman and music by Alan Menken. Welcome to Mushnik's Flower Shop where we meet Seymour Krelborn, meek shop clerk and genuine nice guy. Tired of life in the gutter, Seymour dreams of fame, fortune and love. His heart is set on secret crush and co-worker, Audrey who is busy chasing her self-worth through the wrong men, namely a sadistic dentist. Sweet, sultry, and insecure, Audrey also dreams of someone to love her. She longs for a perfect little family in a perfect little house outside of Skid Row, preferably "Somewhere That's Green". In his quest for something better, Seymour finds and cares for a strange plant that he names Audrey II.
