Molly Ringwald reschedules Spotlight Series performance 

KENT, Wash. — October 17, 2017 – Actress, singer, and writer Molly Ringwald was scheduled to perform with her jazz quartet as part of Kent’s 20th anniversary Spotlight Series season on Thursday, November 30 at Kentwood Performing Arts Center. Following doctor’s orders for vocal rest, Ms. Ringwald is rescheduling all of her 2017 and early 2018 dates. Her November 30, 2017 performance in Kent has been canceled and full refunds have been issued for tickets purchased. 

“An Evening with Molly Ringwald” has been rescheduled for Friday, November 30, 2018, as part of the 2018-2019 Spotlight Series. 

Along with her quartet, Ringwald delivers a crowd-pleasing jazz concert. The New York Times says, “The spin she brings to the American Songbook is thoroughly contemporary.” An actress of stage and screen, Ringwald earned a Golden Globe nomination at age thirteen, and went on to star in numerous films, including the iconic films Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, and Pretty in Pink. On stage, Ringwald starred in Broadway productions of the Pulitzer Prize winning How I Learned to Drive; the revival of Cabaret; Tony-nominated Enchanted April, and the West End production of When Harry Met Sally. 

Spotlight Series is presented by the Kent Arts Commission and Kent Parks, Recreation and Community Services, and partially funded by 4Culture, WESTAF, National Endowment for the Arts, Washington State Arts Commission, and a variety of business and individual sponsors.
