Ry Armstrong Announces Residence Show THEY // SHE // HE at The Green Room 42

Thursday, April 21st, 2022 - Ry Armstrong is debuting their show 'THEY // SHE // HE' at The Green Room 42. The concert will be at 7:00 PM on Monday, May 9th, 2022, at The Green Room 42 at 570 Tenth Avenue, 4th Floor inside YOTEL in New York City, New York. The show's purpose is to break the norm and to take the beautiful and imperfect world we live in and turn it on its head. Led by Ry Armstrong, they and their friends come together to gender-bend and recreate songs from Broadway and beyond through arrangements never heard before. Armstrong says "It is clear that mainstream society can feel like a binary place filled with boxes, labels, and expectations of which we are supposed to conform. At this show, we abandon that belief and choose to live with the spectrum in-between where anyone and everyone is welcome to come and celebrate." The show invites guests to join them in giving up the pressures and anxieties of today and come as your true authentic self. Tickets can be purchased online at the link below.

Ry Armstrong (they // she // he) is an American, genderqueer artist who was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest surrounded by nature and the arts. Their upbringing, which did contain both white and male-presenting privilege, was full of arts education and ultimately compelled them to follow a career in storytelling. Shortly after finishing an undergraduate degree in theatre arts, they moved from the Emerald City to the Big Apple and quickly became involved, as an actor, in productions Off-Broadway (Pete the Cat, Orphans & Outsiders) and in regional houses across the country. Complementary to their acting, their focus lies on their international creative endeavors of producing and writing new works of art to be experienced on the stage and screen. After finishing their graduate degree in International Relations, they took an interest in environmental activism as that issue is set to be the defining crisis of their lifetime. Most recently, Armstrong can be seen in HBO's The Gilded Age starring Christine Baranski and Cynthia Nixon. @ryontheryse -
