Thank you, Richard, for helping to let folks know LULU was indeed back in town for that one super spectacular week. The Times review and Rex Reed’s column alone were enough to make all your hard work worth every penny. You are so good and so joyful about what you do. Lucky to have you in my world."

"This is for Richard Skipper, as I feel I must say this. . . I have known him as a wonderful theater person, a great entertainer, a man of many talents, but there comes a time when all those things he is, that we indeed know so well, are topped! How, one may ask? I shall tell you. There aren't many who have the generous gift of grace, awareness, respect, for the work that has been done by others. For someone as young as he is in terms of the road he has already traveled, and will continue to do so I must thank him for presenting me with a glorious evening in MY HONOR on March 25th to benefit The Spiral Theatre Company! Wow, what a surprise he gave me! I had forgotten so many things I had done, but he had not! He even did some research! He left me feeling Loved and remembered as an ARTIST! Thanks Richard, from one artist to another…." Thank you, Sondra Lee
