I started writing and putting on funny shows in the third grade and I haven't stopped...

Our first show of Songs of Love and Adultery at Pangea over Thanksgiving weekend went so well we've been invited back for the last two Saturdays, January 28, and February 25, 2023.
I’ll weave hilarious stories and songs on the highs and lows of love and adultery. From a Marlene Dietrich tribute “Falling in Love Again” (she had affairs with soooo many men and women!) to cheating classics from the queen Loretta Lynn "You Ain't Woman Enough to Take my Man" and the rarely performed “Other Lady” by Leslie Gore.
And I'll give the skinny on some dishy affairs! (Did you know “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” was written by English songwriter Ewan MacColl for his then mistress singer Peggy Seeger, half-sister of legendary folk singer Pete Seeger?)
For January 28th my special guest will be the fabulous Mariah Bonner, with the gifted Sean Mahony on piano.
It is sure to be another delicious evening of laughter and musical joy. We look forward to seeing you!

“So great to see Lisa Faith Phillips last night in her show “Songs of Love and Adultery”! Lisa is incredibly witty and clever and her delivery is spot on! She had me laughing all the way through, and I loved the song selection as well! Such a great night!”
- Amanda Scalici, singer about Songs of Love and Adultery
"Five stars! Best of the Fringe! A hilarious autobiographical one-woman show …the imagery is vivid, real and funny. The stage is decorated with nothing but her but this is enough…. Phillips is an incredible storyteller and her show is fascinating to watch and to listen to." - DC Metro Theater Arts
"A wildly funny play…Phillips mixes absurdism and social satire to hilarious results as guru extraordinaire Dr. Faith…The play retains a delightful burlesque quality from start to finish…and Mandel provides virtuoso accompaniment… Onstage (Phillips) is a force of nature and bubbly wit, confident in both body and brains." - Jamie Lubin, The Huffington Post
"Outrageously funny and cunning. Devilishly clever and wildly entertaining….every line demanded a boisterous laugh. She exudes inherent fun like a bottle of champagne. Uplifting and unpredictable, Lisa Faith Phillips should have delivered the damn State of the Union Address this year." - Carolyn Smith, Newyorkcool.com
"With a riding crop in one hand, and a feather boa in the other, Dr. Faith lectures, satirizes and sings her way into our psyche. In her charismatic way, Dr. Faith engages the audience with her witticisms and quips, citing current events. Her take on the “axis of evil” suggests a double entendre worthy of exploring! A semi-psychotic break later in the show leads into a hysterical, over the top Broadway tunes tribute. Highlighting other steps, Dr. Faith delivers lovely songs of love & belonging. The audience surrenders to her charm in the number “Let’s Just Keep Falling in Love”. Visit Dr. Faith for a session!" - Andrew Gilchrist, MNN Cable Network
"Both are wonderful performers with great comic timing, Watch Out, Here She Comes!" -Offoffoffreview
"This most remarkable monologue is fun for wives, for husbands, for everybody!" - Pagina 12
"Revealing, uninhibited...entertaining, well written!" - Back Stage
“Chillingly hilarious…Phillips gives us a smart shot of Dorothy Parker." – The Village Voice
“Molti applausi!” – Mario Fratti, Oggi
“Amusing yet oddly touching” – Jennifer Dunning, The New York Times

Through an actress/singer friend, I met Natalie Smith, a dazzling singer-songwriter and gifted actress. Her album Take My Piano is one of my favorites that I listen to all the time. So I was delighted when we had the chance to do a night of comedy and song at Cornelia Street Café Underground.
