A Few Audience Testimonials about Richard Skipper Celebrates
Congratulations, congratulations, a thousand congratulations" and many, many Thank You's t Richard Skipper for his marvelous performance in "Showtune" at the Madison Theatre. If Jerry Herman had seen it, I have no doubt he would agree that with Richard's rich tenor voice and spectacular stage presence, he was THE perfect performer to get things rolling with "It's Today" … lead us into the Act I finale with "Before the Parade Passes By" … remind us in between that "It Takes a Woman" to bring us the sweet things in life … and, of course, to wrap things up by leading the cast and the enthralled audience with a sing-along of (what else?) "Hello, Dolly!" Working with Richard was a real pleasure and I look forward to the next time, and of course to see Richard perform in the interim!

Really KNOWwhat a wonderful gift Richard Skipper gave me in having me perform in Richard Skipper Celebrates. To sing in that beautiful setting (the Laurie Beechman) with that fabulous band (Matthew Martin Ward - piano, Rex Benincasa - percussion, Erik Lawrence - sax, Steve Doyle - bass) and that super-nice audience - so happy, upbeat and warm... This truly was a dream-come-true for me - like walking through a very cool movie :-) but it's real!! I thank Richard Skipper and Russ Woolley from the absolute rock bottom of my heart.
I can't stop smiling and they are the culprits :-)
