Vickie Phillips


By the end of the hour, you will discover some shades of
friendship you had never discovered before.... Each song is
strung on the thread of a story about friendship, like precious
pearls on a string, and the resulting necklace is a comfortable
fit. It is all done so smoothly, so gently, and so lovingly, the
hour passed almost in an instant!

Composer Sheldon Harnick writes to Vickie about her show which includes
performances of his songs: "Hi, Vickie: Congratulations on Peter Leavey's lovely
(and accurate!) review! Here's my quote, which I hope is both suitable and usable:
"I saw Vickie Phillips' current show the other night and had an absolutely
wonderful time. Vickie's personality, skill, experience and choice of material add
up to a richly entertaining experience."

Read Suzanna Bowling's review in Time Square Chronicles

Vickie Phillips is a Hope Diamond in the world of
cabaret singers who are diamonds in their own right. Every facet of her voice and
show fits together into oneincredibly entertaining and moving whole. I didn't want
her to stop singing!  Short on patter, she lets her voice speak for itself. Who does
she remind me of? The late Peggy Lee comes to mind as well as the great Julie
Wilson who was in the audience at Don't tell Mama enjoying every second of
Vickie Phillips' show!
-- Ward Morehouse III, Black Tie Magazine

A Musical Journey... takes the audience on a trip through time and space using
the songs of some of the 20th century's greatest composers... Phillips was
informative, reverent, and wistful when speaking of her European inspirations,
and couldn't help mentioning that she studied under Elly Stone (who starred in
the original production of
Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well & Living in Paris). Phillips
herself had a striking stage presence, with her soft voice, occasionally belting out
a line or two when needed.
