On Broadway, audiences have 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, and she toured the country as Charity Hope Valentine in the Broadway National Tour of Sweet Charity. Now, join Broadway leading lady and icon of the 1980s Molly Ringwald for a musical tour de force, accompanied by The Peter Smith Trio. Television audiences remember Molly from Diff'rent Strokes and the subsequent spin-off, The Facts of Life. Turning toward motion pictures, she found her breakout role in Sixteen Candles. Some of Ringwald's most famous films include The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink. Currently, Ringwald stars in the ABC Family network series The Secret Life of the American Teenager. Cover charge $25-40. $25 food & beverage minimum.
