Greene will return 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 on Feb. 14 at 7:30 PM. Her evening of cabaret will feature a host of standards as well as contemporary tunes by Sarah McLachlan, Queen and Jane Siberry.

Greene 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.

Tickets for Greene's evening of Torch! are priced at $20. Joe's Pub is located within the Public Theater at 425 Lafayette Street, between East 4th Street and Astor Place. Tickets are available at the Public Theater's box office or by calling (212) 539-8776.
