As Phyl explains in one of her Reverend Mother monologues on the “Curtains Up” CD, when she tried out for the Reverend Mother role in Nunsense, she just did her imitation of the Reverend Mother at Sisters of Mercy. Everything else was “just me”. So after a successful three years of “playing herself” in the show, the Reverend Mother became highly sought after for her comedic relief to "roast" groups and individuals at various events and. gatherings. Some of her favorite venues recently are to perform in hospice settings where her wit is as healing as it is entertaining (see recent testimonial).
