Celebrated singing actress Alice Ripley, who won her Tony Award for her performance as bipolar mom Diana in the Pulitzer Prize-winning Next to Normal, will return to 54 Below next month with an all-new show.
The June 1 concert is entitled Alice Imagines; Jess Means is the musical director. Show time is 9:30 PM.
Attendees can expect to hear songs from Ripley's newest musical theatre project, The Songs of Harry Nilsson. Ripley is partnering with San Diego Repertory Theatre, and the revue, which will also feature Tony winner Greg Jbara, is promised a slot in its 2015 season.

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
