This is an adorable musical adaptation of the original and although this is highly entertaining, I prefer the original version. Of course the story is about the nerdly Seymore who works in a florist shop and is in love with a lady named Audrey. He also cross breeds plants and creates a man-eating venus-fly trap plant that cries and sings to be fed. It's actually quite funny as a comedy (the dentist is hilarious), and not exactly scary in any way but it's highly entertaining none the less. The songs range from okay to hilarious, and the plant is unforgettable. Definitely a fun oddball musical that most should enjoy.
