“Tippets’ broad range is tested by countless solos and harmonies requiring solid soprano chops and immunity to vocal fatigue, and she handles the challenge with aplomb.”

Reviews

“Malia’s “Old Devil Moon” is a showstopper, but despite her chops as a vocalist, the place in the video that I returned to over and over was her utterly hilarious retelling of an O. Henry Christmas favorite – which should go down in history as “Malia’s Mangled Maji.” The camera’s ability to bring us close-ups is a real plus in many parts of the show, but nowhere is the technique used more effectively than in in this dryly comic bit of story-telling.”

West Side Theatre Review

Christmas My Way, Broadway Rose Theatre Company

“I was especially charmed by Malia Tippets as Susie Dare, the stop-at-nothing reporter who is constantly thwarted by men who don’t believe in her”

Broadway World

Up and Away, Broadway Rose Theatre Company

“Bright-Faced Malia Tippets shines as the outsider Veronica, particularly in the duet “Seventeen” with the darkly-funny and brooding J.D. (Ethan Crystal).”
