Singer-songwriter-producer Richard Marx is coming back for a return engagement at the Ridgefield Playhouse on Feb. 20 with an intimate acoustic set of his hit love songs like “Right Here Waiting for You,” “Endless Summer Nights,” and “Hold On to the Nights.” In nearly 30 years in the music business, Marx has sold over 30 million albums, toured extensively and written songs with many other well-known musicians from Keith Urban to Sara Bareilles. Preceding the show will be a complimentary tasting of Freixenet Prosecco, ICE and Italian Rosé wines in the lobby. We chatted with Richard about his acoustic tour and newest album, “Limitless,” which dropped Feb. 7.
Andrea Valluzzo: This album was a bit of a surprise to you. Why?
