A love story rooted in world domination, this musical-comedy sci-fi hybrid of a show is about a timid floral shop assistant, Seymour, who discovers a sinister new plant from outer space that he names Audrey II, in honor of his sweet co-worker who has terrible taste in boyfriends. While the addition of this “strange and unusual” plant brings desperately needed business into the struggling shop, the cost of keeping it thriving is pretty steep, indeed!
