First look: Little Shop Of Horrors

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?

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
