A Few Audience Testimonials about Richard Skipper Celebrates
Richard Skipper, THANK YOU for interviewing David Sabella and me not once but TWICE for the release of our new book, "So You Want to Sing Cabaret". You are simply the BEST Richard Skipper. The best at what you do (extraordinary Interviewer); the best at your prep for any of the interviews that you conduct; the best at making your guests feel comfortable and appreciated and the best friend anyone could hope to have. David and I are so grateful to you.
What a beautiful treat to hear and see Richard Skipper's conversation with one of my favorite performers in the world, Marta Sanders. It was relaxed, funny and full of insight about music and the evolution of NYC’s cabaret scene. Thank you!

Thank you for sharing your heart and wisdom with all of us, and for bringing such wonderful artists to your interviews. It is clear that you have a sincere appreciation for what these brilliantly gifted people have contributed, and allowing us to hear their stories, through your kind and supportive interviews, bring us closer to those that we often only see from afar in a theatre or on film or TV screen.
Your interviews are a true gift to the theatrical community!
