Greene returns to the Public Theater's Joe's Pub with her acclaimed show Torch!, which features musical direction by Christian Klikovits. The singer-actress will perform at the intimate boîte at 7:30 and 9:30 PM. Her evening of cabaret will feature a host of standards as well as contemporary tunes by Sarah McLachlan, Queen and Jane Siberry. Greene will also likely offer her two Little Shop anthems, "Somewhere That's Green" and "Suddenly Seymour."
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.
Joe's Pub is located within the Public Theater at 425 Lafayette Street, between East 4th Street and Astor Place. Both shows are sold out.
