Little Shop's Greene to Bring Her Torch to L.A.

News   Little Shop's Greene to Bring Her Torch to L.A. Ellen Greene, who starred in the original production and subsequent film of Little Shop of Horrors, will bring her acclaimed evening of Torch songs to the Cinegrill next month.

On Oct. 20 and 21, Greene — accompanied by pianist and musical director Christian Klikovits — will perform at the intimate L.A. nightspot. Show time is 8 PM. Greene will offer tunes from her debut solo recording, "In His Eyes," which is now available on her official website, www.ellengreene.com. Cabaretgoers can expect the actress-singer to perform such tunes as "Pretty Pretty," "Winter," "When Love Is Gone," "Throwing Stones" as well as Little Shop's "Suddenly Seymour" and "Somewhere That's Green." 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 Cinegrill is located within the Roosevelt Hotel at 7000 Hollywood Blvd. in Los Angeles, CA. Call (800) 950-7667 for reservations.
