Looking Ahead

Happy 59th Birthday to me! Here's to a new decade and a clear Future!

I think of 2019 as a resounding success for me artistically when I performed my solo show, An Evening with Richard Skipper: From Conway to Broadway, (renamed The Magic of Believing) at St. Luke's , Urban Stages in NY, The Theatre of the Republic in Conway, SC where it all began for me 45 years ago. . Thank you to all of you who attended in both New York in August and South Carolina and especially those of you who traveled from all over the country. I was happy to replicate that success on February 8th as brought the show to The American Popular Song Society as part of their 2020 season. As I celebrate my 41st year in New York, who knows what the trajectory of my life will take. Going home again three times this past year (for my mom's 80th birthday in February, to perform my show in September, and my 40th class reunion in October), it meant a lot to me and I was glad to see many of my friends, family, and former classmates as I celebrated my life thus far. I made new friends as well. Read the press on our press and articles page to read more about the accolades for my show.

Some of the highlights that I am looking forward to in the next few weeks: On February 11th (my actual birthday), I will celebrate Jennifer Pace along with a quartet at The Laurie Beechman Theatre, I'm seeing Hello, Dolly! in Philadelphia with Carolee Carmello and John Bolton on February 24th, I'm going to Broadway Belts and on February 25th, I'm looking forward to attending MAC's Open Mic .

Thanks so much, Richard Skipper or Hosting The Dutch Treat Club Holiday Party. He started the party singing , juggled the raffle, talked to the audience, including them in the party, and introduced all the lineup with ease. He IS a master entertainer!

I was lucky enough to see Richard Skipper’s show at Urban Stages this week. He has the unique gift of authentically, poignantly telling his inspiring story while thoroughly entertaining all. He makes a huge theatre his living room and each of us become family. (How much do we need that today?!) His voice is in great form, and so is his comic timing. Regardless of what your dream is, his story of f completing a goal against all odds will reignite your focus, purpose, and belief in the self. See this show!
