Today’s guests are longtime friend of the club Alice Ripley and her frequent collaborator Christopher Schelling.

Alice, who has been hailed by The New York Times as “simply astonishing,” is a consummate Broadway star, a versatile film and TV actor, and a distinguished singer-songwriter. She earned her first Tony Award nomination in 1997 with her brilliant work in the legendary Side Show, before winning the 2009 Tony Award for “Best Actress in a Musical '' for her performance as Diana Goodman in the Pulitzer Prize-winning Next to Normal. She has also originated roles in such Broadway productions as The Who’s Tommy, Sunset Boulevard, and, most recently, American Psycho.

Alice is joined today by her collaborator of nearly 40 years, Christopher Schelling, who is also a founding member of Ripley, the band formed by Alice in 2001. Christopher has served as musical director and manager for a number of other pop rock/cabaret performers. Additionally, his literary agency represents such bestselling authors as Augusten Burroughs, Rainbow Rowell and Kathy Valentine of the Go-Go's.

Alice and Christopher sat down with our Marketing Associate, Adrian Karnani, to discuss memories from these iconic original casts, revisiting Sunset Boulevard, and creating original music for the last decade.

Laura Heywood Interviews Alice Ripley (The Pink Unicorn, Next to Normal, Side Show)

Read more

Alice Ripley is one of the heavyweights of American Musical Theatre. A Tony winner for her star-turn as Diana in the Pulitzer Prize winning musical “Next to Normal,” Alice Ripley is known world-wide for showstopping roles, including those in Side Show (for which she was also Tony nominated, alongside Emily Skinner), The Rocky Horror Show, The Who’s Tommy, Les Miserables, James Joyce’s The Dead, Sunset Boulevard, and American Psycho. She is here today promoting a one-woman monologue show, "The Pink Unicorn," at The Cell, a 60-seat venue in Chelsea.

In “The Pink Unicorn,” from Out of the Box Theatrics, Alice plays Trisha Lee, a Christian widow in Texas whose world is shaken when her 14-year-old child, Jolene, announces that they are not in fact female but instead genderqueer, changing their name to Jo, launching a Gay/Straight alliance, and introducing their mom to the concept of gender-neutral pronouns. Trisha is totally thrown for a loop, hurled out of her comfort zone — and the show takes all of us though the complex journey of navigating the conservative community as well as her own biases, and the challenges of loving and accepting a child who defies expectations in service of being themselves.

To quote Hunter Bell & Jeff Bowen’s quirky, brilliant musical [title of show]:

What Had Happened Was: Why Broadway star Alice Ripley is anything but normal

Read more
Moral of the story, when Scott Ripley warns you about something, take it serious.

Alice Ripley had a reputation even before she set foot in West Carrollton High School for the very first time.

Her proud older brother and stepsister had already warned everyone about the incoming junior.

“(They said,) she’s going to get the lead in the musical so everybody get ready. My brother (Scott) told all of his friends and they were just rolling their eyes,” Alice, the high school’ first female pirate mascot, told “What Had Happened Was” podcast host Amelia Robinson.


Now a Tony Award winner and multiple award nominee famous for her roles in “Next to Normal” and “Side Show,” Alice told Amelia that she managed to not only win the role, but to win over her classmates.

She also won over the TEDxDayton organizers and will take stage this week at the annual sold out event.

Amelia and Alice talk about motherhood, Alice’s 10 siblings, what it really takes to be a successful actress, how Meryl Streep helped Alice get through a very tough time in her life, why Alice stopped being friends and how yoga can stop you from going off.
