Artistic Director Michael J. Ross describes the plant as ''a man-eating, soul-singing and foul-mouthed plant hell-bent on world domination.'' Ross and Kristina Sullivan lead the cast as Seymour and Audrey. The score includes several hit songs: ''Skid Row (Downtown),'' ''Somewhere That's Green'' and ''Suddenly, Seymour.'' Despite the dire fate that befalls victims of the plant, this is a warm, emotionally appealing and hilarious comedy.
