An Evening with Molly Ringwald

On Broadway, audiences embraced her as Sally Bowles in Cabaret, as well as in Enchanted April and Modern Orthodox. Off-Broadway, she received rave notices for her work in Jonathan Larson’s tick, tick… BOOM! and Paula Vogel’s How I Learned to Drive.

Recently, she toured the country as Charity Hope Valentine in the Broadway National Tour of Sweet Charity. But what many people may not realize is that this Broadway leading lady has a bona fide classic jazz background: her father is blind jazz pianist Bob Ringwald. Recognized as an icon of the 80’s with breakout performances in Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, and Pretty in Pink, Molly Ringwald will share her sultry pipes in a concert featuring great jazz standards.

Tickets are $80 and include the concert and pre-performance dinner. Menu to be announced this fall. Tickets go on sale June 15, 2016. This performance is part of the 2017 Moonlight Cabaret Series at ClubM, our indoor super club on the stage of the Moonlight Amphitheatre.
