The high energy, offbeat act pulls into The Cutting Room in NYC for one night only on Saturday, December 10th at 6pm.

Created, written and performed by real life sisters Lisa and Lori Brigantino, the fast talking Midwestern moms will get you in the holiday spirit all while accompanying themselves on many different instruments including acoustic and electric guitars, keyboard, accordion, saxophone, ukuleles, percussion and more!
The Brigantino sisters have performed a number of Vickie and Nickie shows 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!" Downtown Express says “The kitschy duo are not only funny character comediennes, but very talented musicians, each of them switching off on numerous different instruments over the course of a set.” Music Connection Magazine concludes“…”With thick accents and hammy presentation, they’re half concert, half comedy performance art…Most notable is the duo’s multi-instrumental proficiency…Anybody seeking a smile would do well [to see] this twisted pair. What they have is both unique and brimming with good-natured playfulness.”
The creative sisters have written and performed over 10 full length “Vickie & Nickie” shows to date including sold out performances of their holiday shows at The Duplex, Don’t Tell Mama, Dixon Place and other NYC venues as well as several regional theatre performances, at the including the Foothills Performing Arts Center in Oneonta, NY.
