(Aug. 1-26) Little Shop in Olney
AND A BIG, mysterious human-eating plant takes to the stage of Olney Theatre today. The musical version of Little Shop of Horrors finds a hapless florist getting everything he wants at the negligible cost of feeding his famous plant a little human flesh here and there.

Kathleen Chalfant, Maryann Plunkett, and Tamara Tunie bring witty and dramatic scenes from the plays of Zoe Akins, Lillian Hellman, Edith Wharton, and many more to Georgetown University’s Davis Performing Arts Center.
