Alice Ripley may be an above-ground Broadway star, but Sept. 10, she's going underground with an evening of her self-penned pop-rock tunes at the Village Underground. With her band, she'll perform cuts from her first solo album, "Everything's Fine," available on the Sh-k-Boom Label.
The mostly mellow tracks (with two collaborations from Grammy nominated producer-songwriter Bruce Brody) include:
"She Keeps Her Love Away"
"Calling All Angels"
"So Much of Me"
Grammy winner Joel Moss produced the album. Ripley's band features husband Shannon Ford on drums, Glenn Alexander on guitar and Brian Hamm on bass.
Ripley garnered attention and a co-Tony Award nomination for Side Show, in which she and Emily Skinner danced and sang together — literally — as Siamese twins. Other Broadway roles include her current stint as Janet in The Rocky Horror Show, Betty in Sunset Boulevard and ensemble and Mrs. Walker understudy in the original company of The Who's Tommy. Tickets for the all ages show are $15 in advance, $20 at the door. The Village Underground is located at 130 West 3rd Street. Tickets are available by calling 212-777-7745.
