Miss Richfield 1981 "Born Again" at the Atlanta Film Festival

 

Logo Founder Matt Farber and the 42nd Annual Atlanta Film Festival present Miss Richfield 1981 "Born Again" at Plaza Atlanta on April 19 at 7 PM. Doors open at 6 PM. Sponsored by Orbitz, Palm Springs Tourism, and Atlantis Events.

In her all new show, Miss Richfield 1981 is “Born Again” finding new religion to bring our divided world together. With all new songs, videos, and unique audience activities, Miss R brings all faiths together in 2018. Atheists welcome!

Dedicating her life to the friendly citizens and responsible merchants of her hometown of Richfield Minnesota ("where butter is a spice and gravy is a beverage"), 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.

Her live performances have received critical acclaim with The New York Post declaring Miss Richfield 1981 “the must-see act in Provincetown." and Twincities.com noting “in these divided times, Miss R is tonic—and gin—for the soul”. In addition to selling out venues each year in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Atlanta, South Florida, and Minneapolis, Miss R continues to fill Pilgrim House in Provincetown, MA nightly each summer, and tours with Atlantis Events cruise ships and resorts.

Miss Richfield's national appeal includes riotous appearances on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno", "Today" on NBC, "Cake Boss" on TLC, and “Watch What Happens Live” on Bravo. Currently, she is part of the cast of “Talk Show The Game Show” on TruTV, and a television spokesperson for Orbitz. Additionally, she serves as a national brand ambassador for the city of Palm Springs.

What makes Miss Richfield unique is the combination of midwestern sensibilities with an off-the-page humor, stemming from her creator Russ King. 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 has recently purchased a refurbished Apple IIe computer and entered the digital age. She invites you to join like her on Facebook, follow her on Twitter, and watch her on YouTube. And be sure to visit her 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."
