Little Shop of Horrors musical

Went to see the Little Shop of Horrors musical at my local theatre with my friend N and really enjoyed it. I'm always amazed at how much work goes into it, from the "buildings" on stage, to coordinating everything and everybody on a resonably small stage, the music, etc.

We sat right above what I guess is the music co-ordinator, or something like that. He had all these computers and screens and a little tv screen where he could see the maestro (wherever he was hiding). I assume he's was the one controlling all the music and sound effects, etc.

I mean, I imagine it's hard to direct and manage a tv show or a film, but with these, they can be stopped and scenes can be repeated and re-tried (well, most times, I guess), but with a stage production like that, there is very little room for error, and, as they say, the show must go on.

Anyway, I have not seen the film, and didn't know anything about the story, and I did really enjoy the show. No happy ending, though... Just a lesson in the reality of life, in a fantasised sort of way...
