Hunter Foster's Seymor is Good Kerry Butler's Audrey is just plain BAD Compared to Ellen Greene But Michale Leon Wolley's Audrey II is 100% Better than Ron Taylor & Levi Stubbs Put together

Ever since I heard that Hunter Foster (Urinetown) was going to play Seymore in "Little Shop" opposite Kerry Butler (Hairspray, Bat Boy) as Audrey, I have been in anticipation for this CD ever since. But let me tell you, it was worth it! The entire cast does a great job making these classic songs their own. The voices that come out of this cast's mouths are AMAZING! It is a definate buy for any the

I think that kerry Butler is the best thing that ever came to LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS. She is a lot better then Ellen Greene ever was. I just want to say thet Ellen Greene sounds like a dead cow. Hunter Foster is also good.

The story of this musical is just too kooky for me, but I still appreciate the work done here. I too give much kudos to the Greek/girl chorus; excellent, confident singing. Butler doesn't sing enough for me to comment, although what I do hear sounds nice. Hunter Foster I was expecting alot from, since I love his sister Sutton--I hope that's not his real voice because it is too-perfect geek, but he gets the emotions down pat. Douglas Sills is a pleasantly wicked surprise especially since I only know him from Scarlet Pimpernel. But the best part of the CD comes at the end, with Menken and Ashman singing the demos. I know they were trying to achieve a certain sound with the songs they ended up using, but these first versions are just much easier to listen to and I think more clever. Plus Alan's voice just blew me away: he could totally have been a pop singer! And Howard's inflections on "Hobby": priceless. Get it just for that if you've ever been interested in the composers of Little Mermaid, Beauty & the Beast, and Newsies.

I just returned from NYC after seeing "Little Shop of Horrors." The first thing I am doing is buying the soundtrack. Go and see this amazing show -- you won't be sorry.

Little Shop of Horrors is the best musical out there and I am so glad that it is finally getting reconized! I've always loved it! Hunter Foster (Urinetown) and Kerry Butler (Hairspray) are sure to be a hit! FEED ME SEYMOUR, FEED ME NOW!

I think LSOH is one of the best musicals out there. I already owned the 1986 motion picture and the original off-broadway cast album and now this one. In my opinion there is nothing like the original. But the great thing with this album is that it features almost every musical number in the show (the original album cut and reduced many of their songs). I have to admit, the tempo on this album is a little slow. In the show it was much faster...by the way, the show! If you live anywhere near NYC, go see it! I did, it was great! Probably the best broadway show I have ever seen! Kerry Butler was great, live and on this recording. If I were you, I'd buy this album, the original album, the dvd and tix to the show! They're all worth it!

I saw the revival of Little Shop and was amazed. Hunter Foster was every bit as good as I thought he would be, the Ronette's were fabulous but Kerry Butler was dull and uncomfortable to watch. Definetly get it for the girls and Hunter.

I am a big Kerry Butler fan, and when I heard Little Shop was her next show, I had to get this!! Everyone in the cast is superb!! This recording has also made a BIG Hunter Foster fan! A must-have or any Little Shop fan!!

This recording is awesome. Hunter Foster (love him) is an awesome Seymore and Kerry Butler does a wonderful job as Audrey. However, the real stars are the urchins, the trio sounds wonderful together. They are the ones that make me want to get up and dance. I recomend this recording for everyone.

After performing this show for our musical this year I was interested to hear what other people have done with the music. I checked this CD out and am very sorry I did. I was the voice of Audrey II, just to let you know, and some of these songs are just terrible compared to what a little town in Wisconsin can perform. I was in pain while listening to Mushnick and Son, and all the songs with Audrey II lacked energy and charisma, something that this character is built on. Overall, very poorly done, it's shocking that this is a broadway recording!
