Eileen Fulton is most known for her role as Lisa Grimaldi (nee Miller) on the CBS soap opera As the World Turns, a role that she played almost continuously for 50 years from May 18, 1960 until the show's ending on September 17, 2010.
The trajectory of Richard Skipper's career has taken him from South Carolina to New York to Hollywood and all points in between. Known by many people in every aspect of the business, Richard Skipper is known for his hands on approach to the individuals he is working with. He has conducted over 700 interviews for his blog celebrating people in the arts and is currently focused on celebrations to coincide with the 50th Anniversary of Hello, Dolly!, based also in part on his CallonDolly.com website chronicling the Broadway classic. He recently brought cast members together from the originals cast of Hello, Dolly, the Mary Martin International companies, and all other companies led by Channing for a two day special event in New York. The first was for the New York Sheet Music Society and broke all records for that organization. It was all moderated by Skipper.
The next day he threw a reunion party at Sardi's with spectacular results. He has covered several opening nights as the voice of Feinstein's at Loews Regency and has conducted on-stage interviews for Julie Budd, Carol Channing, Jackie Joseph, Tommy Tune, Ron Young, Peggy Pope, Caroline Quinn (author of Mama Rose's Turn), and Yelena Popovic (LA Superheroes: Illegal in Hollywood).
Richard and Eileen will sit down for an intimate chat to discuss her career and life and the people she has worked with for the first forty-five minutes. The last fifteen minutes will be comprised of questions from the audience. Eileen will meet and greet the audience downstairs afterward.
