Little Shop of Horrors
LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS
The Round Barn “meek” shall inherit “Somewhere That’s Green!”
Little Shop of Horrors tells the tale of a nerdish florist who finds his chance for success and romance with the help of a giant man-eating plant who demands to be fed. Based on the low-budget 1960 film, directed by Roger Corman, Little Shop of Horrors was adapted to the stage by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman. This rock musical features several well-known tunes, including “Skid Row (Downtown)”, “Somewhere That’s Green” and “Suddenly Seymour.” In addition to the original long-running 1982 Off-Broadway and subsequent Broadway productions, the musical has been performed all over the world. Round Barn audiences will most likely associate the musical with the 1986 film starring Rick Moranis and Steve Martin which was directed by Frank Oz.
