Long before she was known as the Golden Globe-nominated actress for generation-defining performances in “The Breakfast Club,” “Pretty in Pink,” and “Sixteen Candles,” Molly Ringwald was performing with her jazz pianist father and his band. From that day on she never looked back.
Ringwald gives a fresh spin on American Songbook standards and pops classics like nobody else, with a smile and charm that has illuminated hundreds of venues throughout the world. Appearing with her jazz quartet, Ringwald’s star-power vocals shine brightly on “Sooner or Later” (from “Dick Tracy”), “Don’t You (Forget About Me),” and many more legendary songs.
While most fans are familiar with Ringwald’s work in John Hughes’ iconic films, her captivating talents have been entertaining audiences since her first professional stage appearance in West Coast premiere of “Annie.” She has continued to charm fans through the years with critically acclaimed onstage roles in “Sweet Charity,” “Cabaret,” “When Harry Met Sally,” “How I Learned to Drive,” and many others. Musically, Ringwald has played more than 250 concerts worldwide since the release of her debut album “Except Sometimes.”
“Beyond her immense talents, one of the reasons I wanted to bring Molly Ringwald to The American Theatre is because she is a terrific role model,” said Hampton Arts Artistic Director Richard M. Parison, Jr. “ Her work as a film and stage actress, musician, and author proves that anything is possible. Jazz enthusiasts of all ages will appreciate her take on standards as well as the fantastic arrangements of pop songs. She truly is something special.”
