A comic fable for our times; set long ago in the cursed village of Kulyenchikov. Leon
Tolchinsky, a young, enthusiastic teacher arrives only to discover that the village has
fallen under a curse of stupidity. As it turns out, he has only 24 hours to break the
curse by teaching the young maiden, Sophia Zubritsky something; anything! If he
fails to break the curse, he must leave Kulyenchikov or surrender to the curse and
become stupid like the rest of the village. Simon has crafted a wacky and witty fable
of foolery with surprisingly philosophical wisdom about the nature of knowing.
A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, Little Shop Of
Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatre-goers for over 30 years. Howard Ashman
and Alan Menken (Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty And The Beast, and Aladdin)
are the creative geniuses behind what has become one of the most popular shows in
the world. The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed
of plant he names “Audrey II” - after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&Bsinging carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Krelborn
as long as he keeps feeding it, BLOOD. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey
II’s out of this world origins and intent towards global domination!
