This summer’s lunar eclipse must have dropped a visitor in our midst, because the Woodlawn stage has a bad case of plants from outer space! In Little Shop of Horrors
, poor misguided Seymour gets taken for a ride by his unique new Venus Flytrap, Audrey II, which he soon learns has quite the taste for human blood.
Tempted by the fame that his fast-growing botanical oddity is generating as well as the opportunity to dispose of a rival (who, frankly, has it coming), Seymour finds himself swept into a life of crime by Audrey II’s insatiable hunger. For fans of the movie, be forewarned — the musical has a much grimmer resolution in store for Seymour and Earth’s other humans, but it’s no less entertaining.
$18-$29, 7:30pm Friday-Saturday; 3pm Sunday (through Nov. 5), Woodlawn Theatre, 1920 Fredericksburg Road, (210) 267-8388, woodlawntheatre.org.
