LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS is a 1982 Off-Broadway musical black comedy by composer Alan Menken and writer Howard Ashman, about a nerdy florist shop worker who raises a plant that feeds on human blood. The musical was based on the low-budget 1960 black comedy The Little Shop of Horrors, directed by Roger Corman. The musical score, composed by Menken in the style of 1960's rock and roll, doo-wop and early Motown, included several show-stoppers including "Skid Row," "Somewhere That's Green," and "Suddenly Seymour," as well as the title song.
July 2008 performances were well received by an appreciative audience. If you'd like to take part in ESTA productions, make sure you get on our email list (see left column).
