Roger Corman’s old black-and-white horror-comedy has come a long way since giving Jack Nicholson his first break. From a musical remake directed by Frank Oz to a Broadway musical, the story, like its starring plant, the Audrey II, will not die. It only gets bigger and stronger over time. Musical comedy is all the rage on stage these days. And what can possibly be funnier than a singing, dancing plant puppet that eventually eats all the principal roles and literally chews the scenery?
