Plan Your Visit
Little Shop of Horrors is based on the cult classic horror/comedy film directed by Roger Corman in 1960. The musical’s protagonist, Seymour Krelbourne, who works in a skid row florist’s shop, discovers a weird plant which he names “Audrey II” (after Audrey, the girl he loves). He soon discovers that the plant has an appetite for human flesh and blood.
A character suffocates on stage and is later seen being fed to the plant; three additional characters are devoured by the monstrous Audrey II onstage, but these scenes are humorous rather than frightening.
PLEASE NOTE: This show is recommended for children ages 14 and older. Children under the age of 5, including babes in arms, will not be admitted.
Our Continuing Partnership with ACT -- A Contemporary Theatre
Little Shop of Horrors is a co-production between The 5th Avenue Theatre and ACT -- A Contemporary Theatre. It follows our recent 2013 collaboration on Grey Gardens, our 2012 smash hit First Date, and our inaugural co-production in 2011, Vanities.
The 5th Avenue and ACT Theatre began these partnerships in order to stage musicals each organization might not otherwise produce on their own. With shared resources, the theaters can explore a wide variety of new and lesser-known musicals. The Allen Theater at ACT is an ideal space to explore the more intimate musicals selected for this partnership.
