Little Shop of Horrors

September 10 – October 16, 2016
On the U.S. Bank Main Stage

With a score that is part rock ’n’ roll, part doo-wop and part Motown, Little Shop is the story of the shy and love-struck florist’s assistant Seymour, who finds fame, fortune and a whole lot more when he nurtures a strange little plant with a strong — and scary — thirst. Based on the darkly comic Roger Corman film of the same name, Menken and Ashman created a unique musical that swept the Off-Broadway awards when it premiered, and has continued to be a crowd favorite ever since.
