Cult classic Little Shop gets a more tender treatment at San Diego Musical Theatre
Skid Row gets a dash of surprising realism and some capable crooning in San Diego Musical Theatre’s production of Little Shop of Horrors, now playing through October 30.
The story is the same, of course: a botany-loving boy working in a floundering floral shop pitches a new, as-yet-undiscovered fly trap breed as a marketing ploy to help boost sales. His goal is to keep the shop (and only hope for a relationship with his pretty coworker) alive… but, much to his chagrin, the plant turns out to subsist on human blood, and thus “alive” becomes not only the crux of the story, but also deeply ironic. It begs the question: what wouldn’t a person do for love and success?
