The Department of Drama and Dance presents the cult rock musical Little Shop of Horrors, the story of boy meets girl and plant eats people. Featuring book by Alan Menken, book and lyrics Howard Ashman and direction by Professor Jennifer Hart, Little Shop is the first production to be performed at the Toni and Martin Sosnoff Theater at the newly renovated John Cranford Adams Playhouse.
Little Shop is about Seymour, a florist shop worker who raises a monstrous plant that feeds on human blood and flesh. Featuring songs like “Suddenly Seymour,” “Feed Me (Git It),” “Skid Row (Downtown),” “Somewhere That’s Green,” Little Shop, the musical, premiered off-off-Broadway in 1982 before moving to the off-Broadway Orpheum Theatre, then Broadway, and ultimately the silver screen.
