Molly Ringwald releasing LP and playing NYC; ‘Pretty in Pink’ novelization being read at Union Hall

PiPPiP

As you may have seen in today’s “What’s Going On?” post, Molly Ringwald is performing at 54 Below tonight (1/15, and Wednesday 1/16). She’ll be doing a cabaret set of standards, and perhaps a cover of Simple Minds’ “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” from The Breakfast Club which she does on her forthcoming album Except … Sometimes that will be out in April. Tickets are available for both night.

In other John Hughes-related news, this Saturday (1/19) at Union Hall it’s the debut of “Novelization: A Reading Series Based on the Original Motion Picture” which features dramatic readings of “classic” movie novelizations. For the premiere event, they’re doing the novelization of Pretty in Pink and features Frank “TV’s Frank” Conniff, Heidi Vanderlee (The Chris Gethard Show), Todd Hanson (The Onion) and more doing the reading, plus musical guest Hand Job Academy. Novelizations of Grease, Grease 2, Rambo IV and others will also be featured. The Pretty in Pink novelization is notable in that it came out before the movie and was based on Hughes’ original version of the screenplay…where [SPOILER] Duckie got the girl. Tickets are $5 and still available. More info here.
