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
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
I first became a Ruthie fan 8 years ago when I saw her as Fantine on the TAC Video of Les Mis. I instantly fell in love with her and her voice and have been a fan ever since. I finally got to see her perform live in Chicago last Summer, and I met her too which was a dream come true. Ruthie is and always will be my idol and inspiration! She's a very talented and special person. I'm sure you'll all agree.
I first became obsessed with her last year. I can't remember exactly what sparked it, I think I saw the 10th Anniversary Les Miserables concert and I was like "I LOVE THAT WOMAN!" There is something so beautifully unique about her voice, I think it's her deep scottish accent (this chair is completely out of proportion! i hear they have a picasso in the bathroom!) O man, I love you Ruthie! I also loved her Putting It Together, as Roxie and Velma (Renee and Catherine Zeta Jones? um...NOOO), Amalia (Vanilla Ice Cream! I WANT)
And I got her Pilgrim album last year and it is such a gorgeous compilation of songs though I've worn it out considerably, I need a new one.
