I'm currently working on a documentary on Little Shop and could use your help! For more information, visit the GoFundMe campaign: http://bit.ly/LittleShopResearch
Here is Ellen Greene's rendition of Somewhere That's Green as presented in an early workprint of the 1,986 film adaptation of "Little Shop of Horrors," directed by Frank Oz, based on a screenplay by Howard Ashman, who also wrote the lyrics with music by composer Alan Menken.
This early workprint features a slightly extended shot of Audrey entering her apartment as well as an alternate exit to Audrey's fantasy, where it's revealed that her and Seymour's suburban house is actually an illustration in Better Home and Gardens. It also features a rough version of the song itself, which has a simple temp track in place of the final instrumentation.
Interestingly, it also features Audrey's Monologue, which would later be cut from the film. Though delivered to the Urchins in the musical, here she insead delivers it to herself, and to us, in her mirror. The Monologue was also cut in the February 14, 1,985 draft of the screenplay.
