What is Little Shop of Horrors about?
Seymour is a meek and dejected assistant at a floral shop who happens upon discovering a strange new plant, affectionately naming it "Audrey II" after his crush at the shop. Little does he know that this strange and unusual plant will develop a soulful singing voice, a potty mouth, and an unquenchable thirst for human blood.
As Audrey II grows bigger and bigger and its thirst for blood becomes unrelenting, the carnivorous plant promises a lifetime of fame and fortune to Seymour, as long as he continues providing a fresh supply of the red stuff. Just when it's too late, Seymour discovers Audrey II's extra-terrestrial origins and its drive for complete world-domination.
