NYC's well-known wacky musical comedy sister duo of Vickie and Nickie are returning to Don't Tell Mama for one night only to perform their latest show...Inside Vickie & Nickie! - an up close and personal show about Vickie and Nickie's childhoods, families, show biz careers and their hopes and dreams! The show premiered at Don't Tell Mama in July to rave reviews.
Jenna Esposito of Broadwayworld.com says, "The talented Brigantino sisters put on a show unlike any other - their characters are complete, well-rounded, and immensely entertaining, and their musical talent is undeniable. This show, in particular, was designed to give the audience more of a behind-the scenes look at the sisters (Vickie & Nickie, not Lori & Lisa), so back stories had to be created and embodied, which was done so well that at times I forgot that Vickie and Nickie are just characters!"
And Jon Sobel of Blogcritics.com concludes "The musical-comedy duo Vickie and Nickie are back with a fresh hour of brash singing, multi-instrumental musical hijinks, and faux-Midwestern shtick. This time out, it's Inside Vickie and Nickie, an "autobiographical" tour through the origins of the fast-talking Minnesota moms who are, as always, played to the hilt by sumptuously bedecked and bewigged real-life sisters Lisa and Lori Brigantino."
The multi-instrumental, singing suburban housewife sister duo from Minnesota are played by real life sisters, Lori and Lisa Brigantino, who intertwine song, dialogue, improv and audience participation all while accompanying themselves on many different instruments including acoustic guitars, keyboard, accordion, saxophone, violin, ukuleles and percussion.
