Alice Ripley

 

Last nite I had the honor and privilege of seeing Alice Ripley perform at a small theatre in the Village. I cannot say enough about her. She is just such an amazing singer and it was such a joy to hear her sing. There is something about the way that she sings that just touches my heart so deeply. I don’t think that I know of any other singers who does what she does. Its not clean, or polished, or perfect, but its so real, and gritty, and well, moving! 

I went to the show expecting to hear mostly songs from Broadway shows that shes been in. While she did sing some songs from Sideshow and -Normal, she spent a lot of the time singing original songs as well as other pop tunes. I was completely surprised to hear her open the show with a version of the REM song, “Everybody Hurts”. I had never heard it sung that way (with a guitar, slowly) and it was just beautiful. This number  had extra meaning for me because I have a lot of good memories associated with that song. It was the song that my sister and I choreographed our modern dance piece to our senior year in highschool. Since its our birthday this month and these tickets were an early present, it was such a cool coincidence that she chose this song, of all songs, to open with.

Thank you, Alice Ripley, for sharing your gift with us last nite at Le Bon Soir!!
