Frances Ruffelle, who won a Tony Award for originating the role of Eponine in Broadway’s Les Misérables, has added a 7 PM December 9 performance to her booking at The Green Room 42 in New York City. Her cabaret show, Frances Ruffelle Live(S) in New York!, sold out both its October engagement and its November 12 encore at the same venue.
Producers are again promising that the performer who introduced the song “On My Own” to Broadway audiences will deliver “a wildly entertaining ride straight through the core of the most tender heart, fiery passion and loose comic confidence of a seasoned performer at the height of her game.”
Co-created by Ruffelle and Gwyneth Herbert, Frances Ruffelle Live(S) in New York! has musical arrangements by Herbert with additional arrangements by Jude Obermuller and David Barber.
Though Les Mis was her only Broadway appearance to date, Ruffelle has had a busy career on West End stages, most recently as Queenie in the U.K. premiere of Michael John LaChusa’s The Wild Party.
The Green Room 42 is located in the Yotel at 570 Tenth Avenue in Manhattan. Tickets cost $30–$75 and can be ordered here.
