Roger Corman’s 1960s film was the horror comedy which inspired the author Howard Ashman and the composer Alan Menken, both Disney Studios collaborators, to create the musical The Little Shop of Horrors.

Created by Maxime Pascal and directed by Valérie Lesort & Christian Hecq, this production perpetuates the tradition of musical comedy with a great deal of scenic surprises. French version by Alain Marcel.
