Nothing ever works out for Skid Row orphan Seymour Krelborn, who works a dead-end job in a flower shop where he pines for his beautiful-but-taken coworker. But when an unidentifiable plant mysteriously shows up in Seymour’s life, so does his opportunity to attain, fame, fortune, and the girl of his dreams . . . if he can find a way to satiate his new plant’s appetite for human blood.
A 30-foot-diameter turn table serves as the basis for this set, allowing scenes to flow freely and uninterrupted among the production’s three major settings of Skid Row, Mushnik’s Flower Shop, and Orin’s Dentist Office. A full second level crossing each location provided the space necessary for an expanded cast of thirty performers to appear onstage together.
