Little Shop of Horrors originally opened Off-Off-Broadway in 1982, before quickly moving to the Orpheum Theatre later that year.

After picking up numerous awards including the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Musical and the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Musical, it opened in the West End, before being adapted into an iconic film, starring Rick Moranis, Ellen Greene and Steve Martin in 1986.

Set in the 1950s, Little Shop of Horrors tells the story of Seymour, who becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers a strange and exotic plant.
