Little Shop of Horrors Chicago

LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS

APRIL 29 – JUNE 26, 2016

In this gleefully gruesome musical, Seymour, a poor florist’s assistant, allows his craving for fame and fortune to seduce him into playing nursemaid to a man-eating plant.  The NY Times says this show “leaves the audience feeling like Audrey II…ravenous for more!”
