Miss Richfield 1981
Crescendo Special Guest
Dedicating her life to the friendly citizens and responsible merchants of her hometown, Miss Richfield 1981 is fast becoming one of America’s national treasures. This Midwestern maven is winning over theater audiences around the country with an interactive format that combines homespun warmth and edgy improv, leaving audiences in hysterics with a truly original performance.
Miss Richfield's national appeal includes riotous appearances on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno", "Today" on NBC, "Cake Boss" on TLC, "Weekends With Samantha Brown" on Travel Channel, and, most recently, as a television spokesperson for Orbitz. Her live performances have received critical acclaim with The New York Post declaring Miss Richfield 1981 “the must-see act in Provincetown." and The Chicago Sun-Times describing Miss Richfield as “Garrison Keillor mixed up with Mary Tyler Moore”
In addition to selling out theaters throughout the country--including venues in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Atlanta--Miss R continues to fill the Paramount Theater in Provincetown five nights a week throughout the summer. The diverse and magnetic appeal of Miss Richfield extends much wider to audiences such as a national scientific convention in New Orleans, a horse semen auction in Phoenix, and as a guest soloist with Doc Severinsen and the Minnesota Orchestra. What makes Miss Richfield unique is the combination of Midwestern sensibilities with an off-the-page humor, stemming from her creator Russ King. As a former journalist and Minnesota native, King created the character with a rich history that begins with her life-long goal of being crowned beauty queen of her first-ring suburb of Minneapolis.
Miss R invites you to join her online at MissRichfield.com, where she keeps a calendar of events and shares words of wisdom, such as her favorite Bible verse: “It’s important to be nice, but it’s nicer to be important.”
