Mark Robert Gordon directs; a portion of the proceeds benefit The Dr. Carol Channing & Harry Kullijian Foundation for The Arts.

The production, according to press notes, "celebrates the career and persona of the unique theatrical legend. Accompanied by a three-piece band, Skipper blends Channing's standards with original material and other familiar songs sung in a spot-on Channing-on-Broadway perfection. The musical surveys Channing's life with many stops along the way for Skipper's unique — and riotous — 'ad-lib' interactions with the audience."

Richard Skipper is a four-time recipient of the MAC (Manhattan Association of Cabaret) Award and a Back Stage Bistro Award for Best Performer. He was named one of the Top Ten Cabaret Performers by Cabaret Hotline and one of the Top of the Century Premiere Cabaret Acts by Cabaret Scenes Magazine.

Starting Jan. 31, performances will be Mondays at 8 PM and Wednesdays at 3 PM. There will be no performance Feb. 14. Additional performances as part of the prior limited engagement include Jan. 19 at 2 PM and Jan. 26 at 2 PM and 8 PM.

St. Luke’s Theatre is located at 306 West 46th Street. Tickets, priced $41.50 to $66.50 (with Premium Seats at $76.50), are available at or by calling (212) 239-6200. For more information visit
