A brassy, Brooklyn-born musical comedy actress, Greene has also made a name for herself as a nightclub chanteuse. She began singing in such Manhattan clubs as Reno Sweeney's and The Brothers & Sisters while attending Rider College in NJ, and was discovered by a scout for The New York Shakespeare Festival. Greene performed in such shows as "In the Boom Boom Room" (1974) and "The Threepenny Opera" (for which she won a Tony nomination in 1977). She also appeared in "Funny Face" (1978-79), the ill-fated "The Little Prince and the Aviator" (1981) and scored a great hit as the lovelorn Audrey in the musical comedy "Little Shop of Horrors" (1982). Greene became romantically involved with Marty Robinson, who played the man-eating plant Audrey II in the show.
