When veterans of Jim Henson's Creature Workshop made the mesmerising Audrey II for the film, audiences had never before seen special effects like it on that scale. But in the age of green-screen, CGI and Avatar, we knew we couldn't captivate audiences with just a giant fly-trap puppet. Gasps went round the auditorium as our plant opened to reveal writhing tentacles lit only with ultraviolet light. As the tentacles entwined to drag victims into the depths of the plant, no one could believe what they were seeing. GMT's unique puppetry and movement knocked the petals off the usual papier-mâché puppets. Shaking off the bobbed hair and sequinned dresses, GMT set the show in the 90s. The issues of poverty, greed and unrequited love translated perfectly to the modern day and this modern fairy tale delighted adults and children alike.
