Post Sominex / Audrey
Okay, so I just thought: What if Audrey wasn't dead when Seymour fed her to the plant? She'd already said "I couldn't sleep, i took a sominex". What if she just fell asleep and thought she was dying but didn't?

:shock:

Thoughts anyone?

A few people on Youtube seem to have suggested that too, but I don't buy it. Wouldn't Ashman and Menken have made it clearer somehow that she was still alive if that were their intention? Like maybe have her wake up at the last second just as the plant was swallowing her and go down screaming?

Granted, it would explain her being "alive" and singing along with the other victims during "Don't Feed the Plants." But then so is Orin and he was very clearly dead when fed to the plant, so it's probably just illogical dark humor.

She's in the arms of her lover, singing a ballad of what she wants more than anything in the world, with her arm outstretched before she can finish the last lyric. By dramatic standards, she's dead. No question.

I personally think she's dead, but that's an interesting take on it! :)

That is an interesting way of thinking about it. But, she did almost get eaten by the plant and I don't think anyone could've survived that, and maybe both was happening. She was dying and the sominex kinda helped it along?

Yeah, you're all probably right. I just have a warped mind, I guess. :crazy:
