[SEYMOUR]
Lift up your head, wash off your mascara
Here, take my Kleenex, wipe that lipstick away
Show me your face clean as the mornin'
I know things were bad but now they're okay

Suddenly Seymour is standing beside you
You don't need no makeup, don't have to pretend
Suddenly Seymour, is here to provide you
Sweet understanding, Seymour's your friend

[AUDREY]
Nobody ever treated me kindly
Daddy left early, mamma was poor
I'd meet a man and I'd follow him blindly
He'd snap his fingers, me, I'd say, "Sure"

Suddenly, Seymour is standing beside me
He don't give me orders, he don't condescend
Suddenly, Seymour is here to provide me
Sweet understanding, Seymour's my friend

[SEYMOUR]
Tell me this feeling lasts till forever
Tell me the bad times are clean washed away

[AUDREY]
Please understand that it's still strange and frightening
For losers like I've been it's so hard to say

[AUDREY]
“Suddenly, Seymour
He purified me
Suddenly, Seymour
Showed me I can”[SEYMOUR, URCHINS]
“Suddenly, Seymour
He purified you
Suddenly, Seymour
Yes, you can!”

[ALL]
Learn how to be more

[SEYMOUR]
“The girl that's inside me
With sweet understanding
With sweet understanding”[AUDREY]
“The girl that's inside you
With sweet understanding
With sweet understanding”

[ALL]
With sweet understanding

[AUDREY]
“Seymour's my man”[SEYMOUR, URCHINS]
“Seymour's your man”

Well, I have to say, considering what they are.. if it is so, then they really pulled out all the stops to create one spectacular performance. The thoughtful treatment of so many aspects of their roles.. the care to maintain the integrity of their roles.. Very well done.

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to see this show earlier this week. All I can say is wow. Absolutely ground-breaking. MJ was such a perfect Audrey. She was on the character while bringing more vulnerability to Audrey in a very arrows-out way. And George was just perfect as Seymour. He was sweet and dorky, but really brought the emotion and power when it was called for. The harmonies from the chorus girls were amazing! It was just a spectacular evening, and I even got to meet George at the stage door! He was so sweet and funny. If you have time, I would absolutely jump on the chance to see this show because it left me speechless.

I hope the whole musical address trans rights as like a small undertone. So like Audrey is abused not because she's just in a bad relationship but abuse as well for being trans and once Seymour falls in love with her it would hit so much harder

So Little Shop of Horrors has been my favourite since I was tiny. I've always had the iconic Audrey image. MJ just shattered it! These two are amazing and honestly I loved her as Audrey, her background as a new depth to the lyrics and character I didn't think about before. This made me feel the lyrics differently. I wish they'd do a full recording!

I want to think of Audrey and Seymour when I see this not a trans woman and a gay guy. These performances are about a thousand miles away from the original characters and smack dab in the middle of Political Correctness Street. Rick Moranis and Ellen Green leave this in the dust. This actress blands out an iconic character. And he’s in a high school musical.
