Tony Award winner Alice Ripley will star in the new independent film "Sugar!," according to Variety. It will feature original music by the Next to Normal star.
Written by Leora Kalish, the film centers on a Republican Senate candidate (Robert Clohessy), whose piano-teacher wife forms her own female rock band on a dare. Ripley, who has performed her own music at such venues as 54 Below, will incorporate her own original material into the film.
Shari Berman will direct the film that will begin shooting in summer 2014.
