Ellen Greene began her career as a nightclub singer, performing in the now closed New York cabaret Reno Sweeney. At age 21, Joseph Papp took her under his wing and cast her in productions of Boom Boom Room and The Threepenny Opera. Greene earned a Tony nomination for her work in the latter, but it was her role as Audrey in both the original stage and film productions of Little Shop of Horrors that brought her national attention.
The Unitarian Universalist Meeting House is located at 236 Commercial Street in Provincetown, MA. Call (508) 487-9793 for reservations; tickets are priced at $30.
