Hofstra’s Halloween treat, Little Shop of Horrors, presented by the Department of Drama and Dance, has one final weekend of performances at the Toni and Martin Sosnoff Theater at the newly renovated John Cranford Adams Playhouse. Featuring book by Alan Menken, book and lyrics Howard Ashman and direction by Professor Jennifer Hart, Little Shop’s remaining show times are Friday, October 28, at 8 p.m.; Saturday, October 29, at 8 p.m., and Sunday, October 30, at 2 p.m.
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.
