Don’t You Know Molly Ringwald Sings Jazz?

Wonders never cease. Not only can the actor best known from seminal John Hughes films of the ’80s sing, but Molly Ringwald is now, improbably enough, making the rounds as a jazz vocalist. In fact, apparently she was a singer first, performing as a girl with her pianist father’s jazz band. She tours in support of her sleepy, smooth jazz set Except Sometimes, which includes a forgettable cover of “Don’t You Forget About Me,” The Breakfast Club theme song by Simple Minds.

Tuesday, Nov. 19, and Wednesday, Nov. 20, at 8 and 10 p.m. Blues Alley, 1073 Wisconsin Ave. NW. Tickets are $45, plus $10 minimum purchase. Call 202-337-4141 or visit
