Little Shop of Horrors
What would you do for love? Seymour, a mild-mannered florist from Skid Row, improves his chances for personal and professional growth through a bloodthirsty plant from another planet. His confidence begins to soar, but how far will he go to feed the beast? This doo-wop horror comedy musical botanical mashup is a rockin’ ride that will remind you to keep an eye on your houseplants.
Little Shop kicks off our 50th anniversary season, directed by Department of Theatre and Dance chair Nancy Jones with musical direction from Lexington star Tedrin Lindsay!
