RIDGEFIELD, CONN. -- The Ridgefield Playhouse stage will be graced this month by triple threat singer, songwriter and actress Crystal Bowersox, who was the runner-up on the ninth season of "American Idol" in 2010.
Bowersox will perform at 8 p.m. Sept. 15 as part of her national tour before she heads for Broadway, where she will star in the premiere of Ted Swindley's "Always… Patsy Cline" this fall in the title role.
Her special guest is rising star singer/songwriter and guitarist Emily Elbert, whose most recent album is "Alive, In Love."
With a strong voice and sweet style, Bowersox shines in concert, typically performing both original music and covers while playing guitar and accompanied by her band. A consummate artist whose uncompromising vision of herself and her music is refreshing and rare, Bowersox exudes a gentle warmth and wisdom well beyond her years.
“I believe if you stand for something, stand your ground; stand it strong and stand it proud,” she said in a statement.
For tickets ($35, $45 includes Gold Circle Meet and Greet), call the box office at 203-438-5795 or order online.
The Ridgefield Playhouse is a not-for-profit performing arts center at 80 East Ridge.
