The Green Room 42 – Broadway’s newest intimate concert venue – has announced the return of Tony Award winner Frances Ruffelle with the continuation of the monthly residency of her solo theater piece “Frances Ruffelle LIVEs in New York” on Thursday, February 1. An acclaimed sold-out hit since its first appearance in the fall of 2017, the show is co-created by Frances Ruffelle and Gwyneth Herbert, with Musical arrangements by Gwyneth Herbert with additional arrangements by Jude Obermuller and David Barber.
Frances Ruffelle LIVEs encompasses Broadway, Piaf, French 60s pop, and American chart hits. It features an updated version of “On My Own,” Ruffelle’s signature number from the original Les Miserables, a song cut from the original French production of the show. The evening also includes selections from Michael LaChiusa’s The Wild Party, in which she starred as Qeenie in the show’s recent acclaimed U.K. Premiere.
“Frances Ruffelle LIVEs in New York” is a wildly entertaining and intimate evening of song that whispers seductive secrets, lays bare the naked truth and explodes with the one of a kind bottle rocket charisma that’s kept “Frankie’s” ardent fans coming back for more since she created the iconic role of Eponine in Les Miserables and turned “On My Own” into one of Broadway’s most beloved standards. The show highlights the talents a seasoned performer at the height of her game. Frankie has performed in countless West End shows including Chicago, Pippin and Children of Eden.
The show is based on I Say Yeh Yeh, the most recent of her five solos albums, which was hailed as “passionate and marvelous” from The Stage, and “rich, smoky and superb” from Musical Theater Review.
