On A Wing and a Prayer


Nancy Hasty, an established NYC playwright, has written a one-woman show for sister Phyllis. “On a Wing and a Prayer” is a musical tribute to World War II, honoring the stories and experiences of their parents, relatives, friends and other veterans who lived through this difficult time.

The show is a blend of humor, nostalgia and patriotism and can be performed in a theatrical setting with the added benefits of lighting, sound, dancers and Big Band musicians OR in an intimate performance with Phyllis and piano. It will delight and entertain large conventions, business meetings and corporate audiences

Rave Reviews For Singer Phyllis Hasty


“In May of 2004, Phyllis Hasty performed her one woman show, “On A Wing and A Prayer,” a musical tribute to World War II, at the Texas State Crime Stoppers Convention. Phyllis captivated the audience for over an hour with her dynamic show of sentimental music and poignant stories of the men and women who preserved our legacy of liberty. I highly recommend Phyllis’ unique blend of song and story accentuated by her superb musical talent for an enchanting evening of nostalgia and entertainment .”
Alyson McInturff, Past Pres. Midland Crime Stoppers, Texas

“The songs and stories in Ms. Hasty’s show brought back all my memories of WWII when I was just a young pilot…my generation seldom gets to hear that great music performed live by a lovely young woman. I highly recommend this show for any and everyone.”
General Heine Adderholdt, Ret. USAF

“…An outdoor sunset performance at the historical revolutionary park at Mount Independence- the wonderfulness of Phyllis singing and telling her stories-the music of great jazz swing and standards remains fresh in my memory. It made for the perfect summer evening.”
The Calvin J. Yapp , Concord Mass.

“Marlene Dietrich was alive and singing channeled through Phyllis Hasty’s rendition of Lili Marlene in her one woman show, “On A Wing and a Prayer…”
M. Kennedy, Florida

“Having lived abroad in Asia and Europe, as the wife of an AF Colonel, I’ve seen many shows of top entertainers. Phyllis Hasty stands head and shoulders above most and is as good as the best!!! She has the beautiful voice and range of emotion that embraces the wide variety of music in her show. Her charismatic stage presence and dynamic delivery make her speaking and singing unforgettable.”
Kay Hamilton, KLYNN Industry, Florida

Two years ago, on November 11, Phyllis Hasty performed her fabulous one-woman show at the beautiful Mellow Theater in Scranton, Pa. The performance, "On a Wing and a Prayer" was well-received by audiences at two sold-out shows. Set during the World War II era, the performance offered at times both a nostalgic and rousing trip down memory lane, with a musical backdrop that showcased Ms. Hasty's formidable vocal talents. Written and directed by her sister, Nancy, this original, musical "look back" was a delight for the many veterans who were in attendance. Without reservation, I would whole-heartedly recommend "On a Wing and a Prayer" to any venue fortunate to secure Ms. Hasty's artistic talents.
Christopher J. Lavelle Executive Assistant to The President Lackawanna College
