The production takes place on skid row at Mushnik’s Flower Shop, where the meek store owner, Seymour Krelborn, is tired of life in the gutter and dreams of fame, fortune and love. His heart is set on a secret crush with co-worker Audrey, who is busy chasing her self-worth through the wrong men, especially a sadistic dentist.
In his quest for something better, Seymour finds and cares for a strange plant that he names Audrey II. The mysterious plant has devious dreams of its own and promises Seymour whatever his heart wants if he only feeds the plant.
