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! (read more)

REVIEWS IN BREIF
revised version of A Musical Journey
|A Musical Journey... is performer Vickie Phillips's homage to the
composers Jacques Brel, Kurt Weill, and Charles Aznavour... this
cabaret was a welcome experience, a joyous rendering of the
songs ...Phillips has an unusual voice and brings unique
interpretations to the songs, and her love for these musicians is
clear (read more) ~ Julie Congress, New York Theatre Review
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.

...A Musical Journey was a well-written journey through much
good material, some of which rarely gets performed nowadays.
Let's hope it will get performed again, because this material
should not be forgotten! (read more) ~ Seth Bisen-Hersh, OOBR
The marriage of [Vickie Phillips'] artistry with these two talented
composers makes for a magical match.... The show has so many
standout moments that it's difficult to select favorites.... (read

The Indefatigable Vickie Phillips has balls, if nothing else. In a
cabaret world where performers rely on endless interpretations
of the same 100 or so standards ...And with the elan that is given
for this performer, she soars and scores once again in her latest,
Songs Are Like Friends; Vickie Phillips sings Bob and Gerry.
