It took 26 years for Little Shop of Horrors fans to see a mean green mother from outer space take over the world, demolish New York and eat Cleveland. That’s right: The film’s original apocalyptic ending was restored to its full glory by Kurt Galvao and screened at the 2012 New York Film Festival on September 29. Billed as the director’s intended ending, this Little Shop of Horrors includes 20 minutes of never-been-seen footage in which the blood-thirsty plant eats Seymour, Audrey and pretty much the entire world. The festival’s sold-out crowd was treated to an extra surprise when Little Shop director Frank Oz, composer Alan Menken and star Ellen Greene took the stage after the screening for a talkback and live performance. Luckily, Broadway.com photographer Bruce Glikas was there, too!
