30 Apr 2014
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, has released the latest entry in her podcast series, which is entitled Sonic Ripley.
"Sonic Ripley will be a twice weekly podcast on Soundcloud featuring new and original music and spoken word poems," actress and musician Ripley previously told Playbill.com.
About her newest podcast, Ripley said, "George Benson's 'This Masquerade' is my favorite version of Leon Russell's blue gem. The drums are there to help me learn phrasing as a singer. My neighbors don't mind...not too much."
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
