The exotic little plant makes Seymour a celebrity, but behind the glamour and fame lies a secret he can’t reveal: this strange and unusual plant’s favorite food is… blood! Based on the film by Roger Corman, the classic musical by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken comes to Broadway for the first time in a new production directed by Jerry Zaks.
