On a recent episode of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” actress Evan Rachel Wood made a dazzling appearance that left both the audience and Fallon himself captivated. Wood, who was on the show to discuss her New York stage debut in the musical “Little Shop of Horrors,” brought her charm and incredible talent to the conversation.

During the interview, Wood shared her excitement about being back on stage and expressed her love for the iconic characters Cookie Monster and Elmo from “Sesame Street.” She even revealed that she had the chance to meet them in a previous collaboration between “Westworld” and the beloved children’s show.

But the highlight of the night came when Wood discussed her role in “Little Shop of Horrors.” She talked about her early days in New York, living on the Lower East Side, and reminisced about her karaoke nights during the filming of “Across the Universe.” Fallon couldn’t resist asking for a story, and Wood shared a hilarious tale of a night when she and Eddie Izzard stayed at the karaoke bar until sunrise, singing a cappella after the machines were shut down.

Wood also opened up about her background in musical theater, a lesser-known fact about the actress mostly known for her dramatic roles. She revealed her superstitions, including not saying the name of the Scottish play and always wishing fellow performers to “break a leg.” Wood even mentioned the theater tradition of the ghost light, a single light left burning for the spirits of past performers.

When asked about the challenges of live theater, Wood recounted a funny incident during a performance of “Little Shop of Horrors” when a loud crash backstage coincided with an emotional moment in her song. Despite distractions like these, Wood managed to stay composed, impressing everyone with her professionalism.

To top it all off, Fallon gave Wood the opportunity to showcase her talent once again by asking her to sing a song from “Little Shop of Horrors,” in character as Audrey. With grace and a captivating stage presence, Wood belted out a rendition of Miley Cyrus’ “Flowers,” earning cheers and applause from the audience.
