In a return engagement of one of Feinstein/54 Below's most popular evenings, you are invited to relive the glory and the decadence that was the legendary Studio 54, whose VIP Room occupied our premises.

Come "Turn the Beat Around" as we "Celebrate, Good Times" and salute Studio 54 from it's opening night to the "Last Dance." This is one party you won't want to miss. 54 Below is even rolling out their dance floor for the occasion! Produced and directed by Scott Coulter.

Broadway at the Cabaret - Top 5 Cabaret Picks for February 22-28, Featuring Josh Young, Will Van Dyke, and More!Anita Gillette & Penny Fuller in Sin Twisters, Too!

Where: 54 Below (254 W 54th Street)

World premiere! Those two multi-award winning Broadway actresses, Anita Gillette and Penny Fuller (often mistaken for each other, although one is a redhead and the other, the blonde, is three inches taller!) are back at Feinstein's/54 Below armed with MORE adventures from the Golden Age of Broadway: stories and songs of their glories and disappointments, adventures in the land of motherhood, friendship, romance, London (and, of course, a la the show's title, a juicy spoonerism or two!)

These vibrant and savvy veterans of over two dozen Broadway productions have even both tackled some of the same parts, including the plum role of Sally Bowles in the original Broadway production of Cabaret.

Now, in their sequel show packed with new stories and songs, Anita will share anecdotes about working with Nanette Fabray during the run of Mr. President, running into a tugboat in Florida, and singing, with great trepidation, at the funeral of a legendary Broadway lyricist. Penny will spill the details of her saga with the musical Mack and Mabel... as well as the tale of landing the female lead in Richard Rodgers' musical Rex and being accompanied by the composer Arthur Schwartz for his song "Make The Man Love Me"...

And much, much more... Directed by Barry Kleinbort, with musical direction by Paul Greenwood, SIN TWISTERS, TOO is a must for anyone who loves theater music and show biz lore, and who cherishes the enduring bonds of friendship.

In their latest concert, along with Van Dyke's band, The Whiskey 5, the team will celebrate the golden age with hard-hitting arrangements drawn from the worlds of pop, rock, and folk, and tip their hats to the artists who inspired this musical journey: Mr. Feinstein and the legendary Barbara Cook.

Featuring special guest performer Jenni Barber (Wicked, The Nance) with Tony Winner Karen Ziemba.
