Ellen Greene is an American actress.

BiographyEdit

Born in Brooklyn, New York, she attended Cewjin Camps where she first began to perform in musicals, before becoming a nightclub singer and cabaret artist. Here she caught the attention of various producers, including Joseph Papp, who cast her in a number of roles, and Paul Mazursky, who got her a first major role in a film; Next Stop, Greenwich Village. She would have a number of film appearances after this, including Leon and The Cooler. She also made appearances in a number of television programmes, including voices in Out of Jimmy's Head and Vivian Charles in Pushing Daisies.

However it was on stage that Greene had her greatest successes, most famously creating the role of Audrey in Little Shop of Horrors (which she reprised for the film) and a number of off-Broadway plays.

SingingEdit

Greene had an extensive singing career, both on stage and screen, notably gaining her first lead in Rachael Lily Rosenbloom (And Don't You Ever Forget It), which unfortunately closed before its official opening. Her next venture was more successful, playing Jenny Diver in the 1976 revival of The Threepenny Opera, earning her a Tony Award nomination.

Greene later originated a number of roles in minor productions (Wake Up, It's Time to Go to Bed, The Little Prince and the Aviator) and most famously that of Audrey in Little Shop of Horrors. She also released an album in 2004 entitled In His Eyes and played Miss Adelaide in a live concert version of Guys and Dolls.
