Overview

When it comes to sheer fun, the revival of the beloved Little Shop of Horrors is the hands-down winner for the 2003 Broadway season. Now known to two generations -- early fans who fondly remember the original theatrical run in the late 1970s, and the younger crowd who grew up adoring the 1986 film adaptation -- this pop musical is now a perennial favorite. The cast album of the latest Broadway production is another winner, filled with spirited performances that bring enough novel appeal to enliven the show, while retaining all of the pizzazz of the earlier versions. In addition to strong showings by the leads and the wonderfully effective “Greek chorus” of R&B singers, the new cast recording serves up all the songs from the original theatrical production, including some that were left off the first cast recording. Special features include fascinating demos with composers Alan Menken and Howard Ashman.
