The Green Room 42, the concert venue located in midtown’s Yotel, announces the return of Tony Award winner Frances Ruffelle with another installment of her monthly solo theater piece, Frances Ruffelle LIVEs in New York, on Thursday, February 1 at 7:30 PM. Debuting in the fall of 2017, the show is co-created by Miss Ruffelle and Gwyneth Herbert (who also did the musical arrangements, with additional arrangements by Jude Obermuller and David Barber). The show is based on I Say Yeh Yeh, the most recent of Ruffelle’s five solos albums, and encompasses Broadway, Edith Piaf, 1960s French pop and American chart hits. It features an updated version of “On My Own,” Ruffelle’s signature number from the original Les Misérables, a song cut from the original French production of the show. The evening also includes selections from Michael John LaChiusa’s The Wild Party, in which she starred as Queenie in the show’s recent U.K. Premiere. Ruffelle created the role of Eponine in Les Misérables and has performed in many West End shows, including Chicago, Pippin and Children of Eden.
