In the basement of Mushnik’s Skid Row florist’s, weedy shop-boy Seymour (Moranis) pines for bubbly-blonde shop-girl Audrey (Greene). But the basement is also home to a strange and unusual plant, a growing, bloodthirsty demon determined to devour mankind. It’s hard to pinpoint just what makes this surreal saga such a delight. There’s the music, a wonderful doo-wop score from the off-Broadway hit based on Roger Corman’s 1960 cult classic. There are veteran comedians (Murray, Candy, Belushi). There’s Steve Martin as ‘The Dentist’, Audrey’s biker boyfriend, a happy-go-lucky sadist who nearly steals the show. And finally there’s the plant, a 50ft jiving, root-stomping vegetable from whose 49ft lips comes the voice of Levi Stubbs of The Four Tops. Though Frank Oz will be damned for changing the play’s original ending – let them eat carrots – this wild and witty musical is great fun.
