America’s sweetheart and 1980’s teen idol, Molly Ringwald, will open the Gordon Center’s 20th season on October 25th at 8:00pm. The Gordon is Baltimore County’s premier performing arts center located on the campus of the Rosenbloom Jewish Community Center in Owings Mills, Maryland.

Described by The Huffington Post as a ‘silk-voiced jazz chanteuse,’ Ringwald will be accompanied by a jazz trio as she performs songs from her recent debut CD, “Except Sometimes,” as well as other specially selected music, including her rendition of The Breakfast Club classic, “Don’t You (Forget About Me).

Ringwald grew up in a home filled with music and got an early appreciation of jazz from her dad, pianist Bob Ringwald. “Beginning at around age three I started singing with his band and jazz music has continued to be one of my three passions along with acting and writing. I like to say it is my equivalent of comfort food. It’s always where I go back to when I want to feel grounded,” Ringwald says.

An actress of both stage and screen, Molly Ringwald was cast in Paul Mazursky’s film Tempest at age 13. The role earned Ringwald a Golden Globe nomination. She has since starred in numerous films including: The Pick-Up Artist, For Keeps, Fresh Horses, Betsey’s Wedding, Jean-Luc Godard’s King Lear, and the iconic John Hughes’ movies: Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, and Pretty in Pink.
