Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this musical has dark themes and is not for children or very sensitive viewers. It's campy noir not meant to be taken seriously, but the dark comedic plot involves a sinister dentist who tortures his patients, and a flesh-eating plant that devours human parts in a graphic feeding scene. Some of the serious issues, like abusive relationships and ultimately murder, twitch under the plot's campy mechanics.
Audrey wears very provocative clothes and refers to kinky antics.
The man-eating plant demands to be fed. It gets gory from there on. Also, the sadistic dentist is pretty scary.
Man-eating plant has dirty vocabulary.
Seymour wants to save Audrey from her abusive boyfriend -- an honorable idea, though the means to the end are not.
Drugs / Tobacco /
The dentist abuses laughing gas in a very creepy way.
