From the show:
Seymour is a down-on-his-luck florist with a crush on his co-worker Audrey. When he discovers a mysterious – and voracious – plant, suddenly Seymour and Audrey are thrust into an epic battle that will determine the fate of the entire human race.

Experience the iconic musical as it was meant to be seen, in an intimate 270-seat setting. This thrilling new production stars Emmy® Award winner Tammy Blanchard (Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows), Tony Award® nominee Jonathan Groff (Hamilton), and two-time Tony winner Christian Borle (Something Rotten!). Together they bring succulent new life to a show that has made three decades of theatergoers laugh, scream, and give up gardening for good.
Featuring a book and lyrics by Oscar® and Grammy Award® winner Howard Ashman (The Little Mermaid), music by Oscar and Tony winner Alan Menken (Aladdin), and direction by Tony winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening), this Little Shop will bring you within biting distance of musical theater’s favorite man-eater.
