A very funny play about the cost of fame and fortune, and how people can be manipulated. I am directing this play, which we will perform on November 16th and 17th, 2012. Skewering B Movies, Science Fiction, R&B Music, and pop culture in general, this play gives you belly laughs and tears in a unforgettable package.

Huge propers for the music score, which cannot be reproduced in a book, of course. The songs from this movie are, in the words of Orin Scrivello, DDS, "Big. Catchy.* Still, as I r

Inappropriately funny. Vulgar. Dark. Twisted. Scary-ish. A rather highly-stylized and simple plot at the same time. The characters, especially Audrey, had special traits and personalities that made me feel empathetic. A heartwarming story that suggests themes of self-acceptance, morality, the dark side of fame, love, and evil. This book has enthralled me and has got my interest in musicals.
Harry Boyd
I love this musical. It's your bog standard cheesy love story but with a huge man eating plant thrown in! This makes it so much more different than other musicals particularly in the Faustian ending but I won't spoil it. There's this underlying sinister nature to the musical that keeps the audience on their toes and even rather Brechtian as you find yourself laughing at the most horrendous events. Musically it is not terribly outlandish but it's still very nice and the last song is really epic w ...more
A classic crazy romp and weird tale. Reading it for work...and production was fun.
Tracy Morton
Fun and recognizable. This show is always a hit.

How can you not love Little Shop? It incorporates love, corruption, greed, fame, comedy, and inhumanity. I played the crazy sadistic biker dentist-Orin Scrivello, in this show! One of my favorites! Look out for Audrey II! Also, a fabulous collaboration between Menken and Ashman.
I loved this story as a child. Really prayed on some fears of mine involving dentists and created some new ones involving plants. Bus the older I've gotten, the more I don't care for this play. It doesn't get better with repetition.
The evil in this play is absolutely amazing. Great play, well written, cool interjections of song to help advance the plot.
this is not scary(i saw the musical to) !!!!!!! (Even when a jiant plastic plant starts singing that it WHANTS BLOOOOOOOOD)
James Loranger
extremely difficult to stage and direct well (but easy to do badly); however, it's worth the effort. Terrifically funny.
My favorite musical. My favorite role. Beautiful, and funny, and sad. Kindof like life.
This sucker gets stuck in your head! (If it doesn't eat you!)
a perfect greek tragedy
