How far would you go to win the hand of the one you love? In Little Shop of Horrors by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman (the team that also gave us The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast) , we are given an extreme answer to that question. It is the story of Seymour Krelborn, the meek unassuming assistant in a flower shop, and his love for the glamorous Audrey, who is involved in an abusive relationship with a sadistic dentist. Seymour’s cause seems hopeless until the day he finds a strange new plant. Seymour names his unique find Audrey II, after the object of his affection, but he soon finds out that he is in over his head. Audrey II has curious appetite for human blood, and a voice to demand that Seymour help him meet that need, as it grows to an enormous size.
But maybe this isn’t all bad. Audrey II and his blood thirst might just be the way to get rid of Audrey’s cruel dentist, clearing the way for Seymour to sweep her off of her feet! The only troubling question is…where will it end?
