Celebrate Halloween by attending opening night of Little Shop of Horrors, a hilarious spoof of the 1950s sci-fi movie of the same name. The story finds Seymour, a down on his luck florist, who finds instant fame with his discovery of a strange-flesh eating plant. Seymour's deal with the plant to exchange its thirst for fresh blood for fame and fortune quickly backfires as the plant grows out of control. Little Shop of Horrors ran for more than 2200 performances Off-Broadway's Orpheum Theatre. It features such songs as: " Little Shop of Horrors", "Somewhere That's Green", and "Suddenly Seymour."
