A video I took of Ellen Greene singing Somewhere That’s Green from Little Shop of Horrors with Alan Menken on piano during the New York Film Festival’s presentation of the newly restored director’s cut of the musical.
Alan and Ellen surprised the audience by singing some of the songs from the film/show, with Alan singing Suddenly Seymour, Mean Green Mother From Outer Space, Dentist, and Little Shop of Horrors, then Ellen finished with this song, and cue the standing ovation.
No one quite like Ellen Greene. She’s so one of a kind and amazing. I admit I first knew of her in Pushing Daisies and Heroes, but then I saw the rest of her work and she is just so excellent. And also looking amazing for 61!
