Molly Ringwald Quartet
Audiences have embraced her on Broadway as well as Off-Broadway. She’s a novelist and she’s fluent in French. You know her best from 1980’s movies such as Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink. But what many people may not realize is that Molly Ringwald, Broadway leading lady and icon of the 1980‘s, has an authentic classic jazz background. She grew up singing tunes from the Great American Songbook with her father, jazz pianist Bob Ringwald.
This March, enjoy an intimate evening with Molly Ringwald as she interprets jazz standards from her brand new album, Except Sometimes, produced by pianist Peter Smith. Backed by Smith and a full band, hear fresh new arrangements of songs such as “The Very Thought of You” and “You Fascinate Me,” as well as a surprise finish.
