Subj: Re: SANDRA REAVES-PHILLIPS
Wow. What an amazing performance by Sandra Reaves Phillips to close the Theatre's annual Black Cultural Arts Festival. I can't believe it's taken me so many years to book her show, and I thank you for always suggesting it to me, as it was one heck of a crowd pleaser. EVERYONE loved it. My regular crowd asked why we only did one show, and others when we were bringing her back so they could invite their friends and family.
As I told you, I saw Sandra perform the Late Great Ladies of Jazz and Blues many years back at the John Houseman Theatre. Must have been 18-20 years ago and it's a performance I still remember because of the energy and talent and the buzz in the room. Well.......20 years later, I confess I think her show was even better than what I so fondly remembered.
Sandra was great, as was her band. She gave 100% and her ability to engage the audience was exciting and made for some very special moments of theatre. She is real. Sincere. And....a top notch performer.
So..we must talk about bringing Sandra back. Soon!
