Molly Ringwald Suggests Pairing "a Bordeaux" with Her Jazz; Performs in Boca This Week

The name "Molly Ringwald" instantly evokes a collage of images. Pink prom dress. Sitting on a table eating cake with a cute boy. Putting lipstick on with the power of boobs. But a lot of time has passed between Molly's days in the John Hughes '80s acting circle known as the Brat Pack, and the career she has led since has been one filled with variety. She's an author twice over, a TV star, a theater baby, Reddit hero, and now, an accomplished a Jazz singer. Her debut album entitled "Except... Sometimes" takes its cue from the Great American Songbook. She chose nine songs from there, and one track that she hopes will bridge the gap between her past and her present.
