In the midst of this heatwave, it’s a wonder that anything can grow at all. But over at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, there’s a mean, green, man-eating machine (well, plant) taking root. Howard Ashman and Alan Menken’s zany B-movie musical Little Shop Of Horrors has rarely looked so… alive!
With spectacular design from Tom Scutt, the show’s already looking like a must-see summer spectacle. And for the die-hard fans of the cult hit show, there’s a rather unique take on the plant in question, Audrey II, to enjoy. Take a look at Johan Persson’s stunning production photos below.
Little Shop Of Horrors is set in the dilapidated Skid Row, where for a bunch of misfits, life is full of broken dreams and dead ends. But suddenly, there’s hope on the horizon for flower shop assistant, Seymour, when he discovers a mysterious new plant… with killer potential and a voracious appetite.
Will his newfound fame and fortune win the attention of kind, sweet, delicate Audrey? Can he finally break free and be happy… whatever the consequences? And how much will Seymour sacrifice to live the life of his dreams?
