From the show:

Don’t miss the “triumphant and delicious revival” (The New York Times) of LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS! Experience the hit musical as it was meant to be seen, in an intimate 270-seat setting. This “wildly exuberant and irresistible” (The Hollywood Reporter) production stars Emmy® Award winner Tammy Blanchard ("Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows"), Tony Award® nominee Gideon Glick (To Kill a Mockingbird), and two-time Tony winner Christian Borle (Something Rotten!). Together they bring succulent new life to “the best musical ever adapted from a movie” (Time Out, Critics’ Pick).

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 is to die for!” (NY1).

Disappointing, Overrated, Dated, Cliched, Banal

See it if you just have to see every incarnation of this show.

Don't see it if you want anything new or different. This is a rehashing of the original. Boring.

60
Not entertaining, Ambitious, Overrated, Great singing, Disappointing

See it if Acting and singing were top notch. The adaptation was horrible. Tony award winner was not in show and no announcement for understudy.

Don't see it if You expect a revival or a semblance of one.

4/5 Stars "Mayer has wrangled a marvelous cast…Groff's Seymour is a likable klutz with just a hint of deadpan creepiness…Christian Borle solidifies his status as the preeminent musical-theater clown of his generation...And Blanchard is a revelation...She's the heart of the production."

"The show’s most charming quality is its feeling of having been put on for the hell of it. I’m sure it’s going to make money. It’s a dream cast of consummate pros. But — and my eyes look like hearts while I type this — the infectious energy is pure amateur."
