I've just discovered Ruthie Henshall to tell the truth. My high school is doing Les Miserables for our spring musical and when it started I thought I should no the plot before I was a part of it. So I got a hold of the TAC of Les Miserables and pretty much fell in love with Fantine and Ruthie. Ever sense I've searched youtube for clips and i've found a few good ones. So here's one.
This place needs more action! This is my first time posting here, btw. I LOVE Ruthie. I'm a huge fan! You all need to watch this vid: http://youtube.com/watch?v=cwTnrF29jz8 She's absolutely great in it!
Hi everyone, Sorry i haven't really updated in ages!!! But there isn't really much news about ruthie, except for the fact that she is going into 'Woman in White' in the West End, which sundragon has already told us about :)
In non ruthie related news, I have got a place at AMDA (American Music and Dramatic Academy) in New York, to do the musical theatre course-very exciting! So in October, I will be moving from England to New York- so if any of you live in or near New York, it would be great to meet up or something!
Hope everyone is well, and enjoying life in general :) Lots of Love, Charlie xxx
Now that I've figured out how to actually POST, and I don't feel technologically challenged [completely]...
Just for curiosity's sake, where is everyone here from? I'd assume mostly from the UK, since not many people here (even in theatre) in the US seem to have heard of her :(. And I know there are people from other countries, too, which should be interesting :).
I'm from Connecticut, USA... I'm 16 years old and have loved Ruthie's work for a few years (probably not as long as a lot of you guys!), ever since I saw her in a rented video of the Les Mis TAC (I replied to Taukki's entry below at first and said some of this before hehe). Umm what else... I'm not currently considering a career in theatre, but this is my first year as Stage Manager/Tech Head of my high school's drama club, and I love doing it! (I'd love to act, but I'm a little too shy for that, lol)
Its great to see this group doing so well! I'm sorry I haven't posted for a while-I have had a busy summer, and am now fully back in England-trying to get a job and applying to drama schools! Everything is very hectic!
Firstly I would like to add my congratulations to Ruthie on her wedding and her pregnancy. I recently saw her at the Proms, singing songs from Kurt Weill, and as well as being amazing she also looked great.
Also to keep this website going well, I invite anyone to post anything they want, even if its non ruthie related, for example any new musicals people have seen or if anyone has auditions they would like to discuss. Basically anything at all!
I'm Robin and I'm a 16(17 in Nov) year old girl. I've only seen Ruthie on the TAC and I fell in love with her when I first saw that in 1996 (or something like that). I started to love Les Mis and Fantine because of her, and since a year from now I've been checking her site and learning stuff about her, listening to more songs etc. You can read more about how I discovered her at my Fantine Fanlisting and my Ruthie Henshall Fanlisting, I hope you don't mind me posting the links here, but I figured that we should get as many fans as possible to sign up for the FL so that she'll get the attention she deserves ^^
I'm noew here. I just found this community. :) I'm a big fan of Ruthie! I haven't seen her performances live but I love her in Miss Saigon! She is wonderful Ellen! :) I am hoping to see her someday live! :D
Hugs to everyone from Finland! Love, Hanna aka Taukki
Like my good friend Jen (the theatre fairy) I too was fortunate enough to see the wondrous Ruthie in Chicago last year, and meet her after the show, and she is just amazing. As a performer, and as a person. In fact, if you go to my journal, the photo of me with her is up there... not that it was a special day to me or anything, and I don't talk about it all the time *ahem*
I'm also lucky enough to have got to know the lovely Tim (Ruthie's fiance) over the past few months... and I love them both! Together and separately!
