Read the BistroAwards.com Review: “astonishingly supple voice and myriad lyric interpretations…”
Read the CabaretScenes.org Review: “Sassy, touching, intelligent, beautifully gowned, she simply conquered the stage.”
“… doesn’t take herself too seriously while exhibiting perfect comic timing and a touch of sexiness.”
“And oh, does she know how to build a number…transforms from saucy to sizzling…an emotional payoff with the skill and confidence of a Judy Garland or Barbra Streisand.”

December 9, 2015, Sierra will perform in Ogunquit Playhouse’s “White Christmas” at the Music Hall (Portsmouth, NH)
From www.ogunquitplayhouse.org:

Building on the great partnership with the Music Hall in Portsmouth, the Ogunquit Playhouse will once again produce a holiday show for the historic theatre. The Irving Berlin classic White Christmas will be presented just in time for the holidays from December 9 to 20. Based on the beloved, timeless film, this heartwarming musical adaptation features seventeen Irving Berlin songs and a book by David Ives and Paul Blake. Veterans Bob Wallace and Phil Davis have a successful song-and-dance act after World War II. With romance in mind, the two follow two beautiful singing sisters to their Christmas show at a Vermont lodge, which just happens to be owned by Bob and Phil’s former army commander. The dazzling score features well-known standards including “Blue Skies,” “I Love A Piano,” “How Deep Is the Ocean” and the perennial favorite, “White Christmas.”

Friends! I’m being taken away from New York City by Mr. Mouse again, and I’d love to see many of you before I do! Thus, I will hang out at etcetera etcetera restaurant on West 44th Street (Between 8th and 9th) for drinks at the bar, and would love for you to stop by, starting at 4pm. Then, at 6:15pm if you want to accompany me I will go to Mark Janas’ The Salon Open Mic (7pm-10:30pm), which is $10 cash at the door and a $15 food/drink minimum (BUT any drink imbibed earlier will apply to your Salon minimum!). Richard Skipper will be co-hosting and the theme is the very positive “Reaching Goals – From Resolution To Reality.” Bring your sheet music or taste for the martini, and hope to see you either before and/or during the show!
