Legendary entertainers Kenan and Kel made theatrical history when they broke down the fourth wall, and then, to the consternation of the set designer, broke down the second and third walls as well. Experience the magic of the stage with today's Groupon for one ticket to see North Carolina Theatre's production of Little Shop of Horrors at Raleigh Memorial Auditorium on September 21, 22, or 23. Pick from the following ticket options:
- $20 for a side or corner mezzanine ticket (a $41 value)
- $23 for a center mezzanine ticket (a $46 value)
Little Shop of Horrors tells the story of humdrum horticulturalist Seymour, his curiously carnivorous plant, and the bizarre goings on at a Skid Row–flower shop. In perfect alignment with the predictions of Nostradamus and Walt Disney, the plant's behavior becomes increasingly erratic and dangerous. Eventually Seymour, a beautiful blond named Audrey, and the rest of humanity are brought to the edge of peril in a ruthless rampage of carnage and insurance fraud. Take in the ongoing drama as you bop your head, tap your toes, and wiggle your eyebrows to the classic black comedy's vintage rock 'n' roll–style tunes. The show acts as a valuable cautionary tale for gardeners and landscape architects of all shapes and sizes—though like Wes Craven's seldom-seen nature documentaries, some of the material may not be appropriate for everyone.
North Carolina Theatre has been presenting Broadway-caliber entertainment in the Raleigh region for more than a quarter of a century. Its four productions each year provide local audiences the opportunity to catch classic shows and contemporary hits, as well as test night-vision contact lenses, motorized clapping devices, and frightening robot mouths that cheer "encore!" in a harsh metallic susurrus.
