RICHARD SKIPPER: THE MAGIC OF BELIEVING
An Afternoon with Richard Skipper: The Magic of Believing tells the story of a precocious 13-year-old South Carolina-an who decided on August 5th, 1974 that he would move to New York in five years, to the day, and try his hand at show business. “In his beautifully constructed and engaging one-man show, Skipper, with candor and humor (his timing is a master class in itself) regaled with tales of his youth and the road to New York City from Conway, South Carolina.”

A Few Audience Testimonials about Richard Skipper Celebrates
My husband and I just loved Richard Skipper's show, "... The Magic Of Believing", at Urban Stages. Richard has such an engaging and charismatic presence onstage and nothing seems to throw him. And he has a great voice, as well. The story of his journey from Conway to New York was so intriguing. He is a masterful storyteller. Thank you, Richard Skipper, for an absolutely wonderful night in the theatre.

Bob and I just returned from a great evening at a sold-out theater performance of Richard Skipper's One Man Show, which is called "An Evening with Richard Skipper: From Conway to Broadway"! Wait till you hear about his first audience for his performances! Richard is a role model for all of us for doing what's immensely gratifying artistically, as well as totally unreasonable (his Carol Channing impersonation stories that were also about their longstanding friendship that developed once she heard about these, were beyond impressive). And I have to say that one of my favorite parts came when an on-stage interviewer asked Richard how he was able to keep his positive attitude so strong in the face of the chaos and negative things going on around us. He said, "I do my morning pages and go on artist's dates as part of my Artist's Way practice to stay positive." Yay, Richard -- I felt so proud, and Bob and I cheered him loudly. And I'm also so proud of him for leading the way for us and for being such an inspiration. Congratulations, Richard! I think there might be another show soon, so those who missed it will have another chance to see it. Best to all,

Richard Skipper's splendid show "From Conway to Broadway" was the culmination of years of extensive experience singing in theater and cabarets, helping him become the great Showman, Performer, and Producer that he is today. Am honored that he will be performing this remarkable show at The American Popular Song Society at The Green Room 42 on February 8th, 2020 to celebrate this great achievement and his birthday! So proud of you and the best is yet to come!
