Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre brings the beloved mean green monster plant musical Little Shop Of Horrors to its unique outdoor setting.
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. Suddenly, there’s hope on the horizon for flower shop assistant, Seymour, when he discovers a mysterious new plant with killer potential.
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?
Little Shop Of Horrors is the stage musical of Roger Corman’s hilariously zany film, with screenplay by Charles Griffith. Book and lyrics are by Howard Ashman, with music by Alan Menken, who has written for numerous Disney films.
A horror comedy rock musical, popular songs include the likes of Skid Row (Downtown), Somewhere That’s Green, and Suddenly, Seymour.
Making her Open Air Theatre debut, this production of Little Shop Of Horrors is directed by Maria Aberg. Maria’s recent work includes Dr Faustus, Marlowe’s tale of soul-selling which the plot of Little Shop Of Horrors closely resembles thematically. Her other theatre credits include The White Devil, As You Like It, King John, The Gods Weep and Days Of Significance (all with the Royal Shakespeare Company).
The production reunites much of the creative team behind Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre smash-hits Jesus Christ Superstar, including designer Tom Scutt and musical supervisor Tom Deering, and On The Town, including lighting designer Howard Hudson.
Something’s coming alive at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre – somewhere that’s green – with Little Shop Of Horrors!
