A teaser trailer for the music-themed feature film "Sugar," featuring Tony Award winner Alice Ripley, has been released.

Written by Leora Kalish and directed by Shari Berman, "Sugar" follows a wife and mother who begins a rock band. Robert Clohessy (Pal Joey, "The Wolf of Wall Street") co-stars with Ripley.

Here's how the film is described: "Responding to a dare, Leslie, a housewife and 50-plus piano teacher, secretly forms an all-women rock band, SUGAR!, turning her entire world up side down. At the same time, her husband, a conservative Republican, runs for the US Senate. The band goes viral as 'MILF' musicians. When her husband and college-bound daughter discover the secret, all hell breaks loose. Meanwhile, Leslie has a clandestine affair with a younger bartender and almost destroys the band. In the end, her marriage, the band's fate, and her husband's election remain cliffhangers, but victory is in the air."

Ripley is a Tony Award winner for her performance in Next to Normal and received a Tony nomination for Side Show. Her stage credits also include The Who's Tommy, Sunset Boulevard, James Joyce's The Dead and The Rocky Horror Show.
