Tony Award winner Frances Ruffelle, who created the role of Eponine in the London and Broadway productions of Les Misérables, will return to the new Manhattan nightspot 54 Below in September.

The acclaimed singing actress, who played the intimate venue in May, will again offer Beneath the Dress Sept. 16 at 7 PM and Sept. 18 at 9:30 PM. There is a $35-$45 cover charge and a $25 food and beverage minimum.

In a statement Ruffelle said her new show "certainly reveals more of the real me than anything I’ve ever done. The songs are inspired by people I admire, situations with which I associate and women who just love to entertain."

Frances Ruffelle's many stage appearances include Dinah in Trevor Nunn’s Starlight Express, Yonah in the original West End production of Children of Eden, Roxie Hart in Chicago and, most recently, the title role in Piaf. She also made a cameo appearance in the "Les Misérables" film.
