A Few Audience Testimonials about Richard Skipper Celebrates

I love Richard Skipper so much and his shows are beyond your expectations!!!!!!! Xo
-Rose Apuzzo

I was so happy that we attended Richard Skipper’s Christmas cabaret on Sun. 12/3, thanks to Arlene Jacks, who recommended it very highly. What a great experience – it was fun, heartwarming and sentimental. Great performers and great audience! What a treat to see Kathryn Crosby – that really took me back in time to all the Bing Crosby Christmas specials. I can’t wait to attend future celebrations. Richard: you and your team are a class act!
Diane Merklinger, Briarwood, New York

I was so happy attending the wonderful event on Monday, October 30th, with Richard Skipper interviewing my old friend Joyce Bulifant at the Drama Book Shop. Richard’s knowledge of show business and his infectious good humor were ideal to bring out the best stories from Joyce’s terrific new book. Richard has the ability to make every event a very special occasion. I look forward to attending the next special night when Richard Skipper celebrates another remarkable person.
