    Has anyone seen the Little Shop of Horrors musical/play? Thoughts on whether it’s kid appropriate for ~7-8 year olds? I’m finding things online saying it’s appropriate for ages 5+, but I’d hate to get unpleasantly surprised…

       Just let your child enjoy it!  It’s great fun. It only won like a thousand Tonys.

      Although being comedic and campy, it is a horror plot. Any version of it would not have been appropriate for my kid at 7, but he was exceptionally sensitive at that age. Most kids would take it in stride I bet.

Sorry, comment time is over.
