On Sundays, March 13 and 20, Greene — accompanied by pianist and musical director Christian Klikovits — will perform at the new theatre on Ventura Boulevard. Show time is 8 PM. Greene will offer tunes from her critically acclaimed debut solo recording, "In His Eyes," available on her official website, www.ellengreene.com. Cabaretgoers can also expect the actress-singer to perform her signature tunes from Little Shop of Horrors, "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. Among her recent theatrical credits are the West Coast staging of Side Man and an all-star reading of Women Behind Bars. Her many screen credits include "The Cooler," "One Fine Day," "Léon," "Fathers & Sons," "Stepping Out," "Pump Up the Volume," "Talk Radio" and "Next Stop, Greenwich Village."
The Whitefire Theatre is located at 13500 Ventura Boulevard in Sherman Oaks, CA. Reservations may be made by calling (818) 990-2324.
