Looking Ahead

Happy October

Wow! What a whirlwind September was. Everything built up to my show on September 28th at my hometown theatre of The Theatre of the Republic in Conway, SC where it all began for me. I'm happy to report it was a resounding success for me artistically. 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 hope to replicate that success on December 11th as I bring the show to Urban Stages to kick off their Winter Rhythms series. As I continue to celebrate my 40th year in New York, The Theatre of the Republic is celebrating their 50th year. Who knows what the trajectory of my life would have been if this theatre never existed. Going home again 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.

Some of the highlights that I am looking forward to in October: On October 16th, We will celebrate Marge Champion’s 100th birthday (Sept. 2nd) with luminaries galore! John Anthony Gilvey (Before the Parade Passes By: Gower Champion and the Glorious American Musical), John Canemaker, Greg Vander Veer (Keep Dancing), Larry Fuller,Mindy Aloff (Hippo in a Tutu: Dancing in Disney Animation),Danny Osman, Norton Owen (Director of Preservation Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival), AND Rex Reed.

I'll be heading to Goodspeed Opera House to see Billy Elliot this month and Paper Mill Playhouse to see Chasing Rainbows (which I saw a few years ago also at Goodspeed). I'm heading back to South Carolina for my 40th High School Reunion! This is my first and I'm excited! I'll be seeing Rosemary Loar on the 10th at Don't Tell Mama, Gretchen Reinhagen on the 15th at Pangea, and the Closing Night of The Cabaret Convention on Halloween! Trick or Treat?

A Few Audience Testimonials about Richard Skipper Celebrates

Richard Skipper's show on Sept 28 in his hometown, Conway, SC, was simply outstanding. It was funny, heartwarming, and brought back so many memories. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute. My 18-year-old grandson attended the show with me, and he absolutely loved it, too. Good, clean fun and exquisite talent! I would highly recommend this show and can’t wait for the next one!
