Anita Gillette and Penny Fuller Return to Feinstein's/54 Below in SIN TWISTERS, TOO! Tonight

Anita Gillette and Penny Fuller's new show, set for Feinstein's/54 Below for two performances, tonight, February 24th, and March 2nd (both at 7 p.m.), is a sequel to their critically acclaimed SIN TWISTERS!

SIN TWISTERS, TOO! will make its world premiere at the supper club, featuring 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!). The pair is 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. Mirth, Memories, and 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.

ANITA GILLETTE may be best known for playing MONA the mistress in MOONSTRUCK or Tina Fey's mother in 30 ROCK, or Jack Klugman's wife in QUINCY. She recently appeared on MODERN FAMILY and BLUE BLOODS.
She has more than fourteen Broadway shows to her credit, including CHAPTER TWO (Tony Nomination, LA Drama Critics Award) Cabaret, Carnival, Gypsy, GUYS & DOLLS, DON'T DRINK THE WATER, ALL AMERICAN, JIMMY, THEY'RE PLAYING OUR SONG, BRIGHTON BEACH MEMOIRS, MR. PRESIDENT, THE GAY LIFE, KELLY, SHOWBOAT and ENCORES' BLOOMER GIRL and 70 GIRLS 70.Off Broadway and Regional credits include: SHIRLEY VALENTINE, SKIN OF OUR TEETH, JUNO, RICH & FAMOUS, TRAVESTIES, THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST, MY FAIR LADY, THE WINSLOW BOY, IRENE, SOUTH PACIFIC, SWEET BIRD OF YOUTH, (with Joanne Woodward) THE GREAT WALTZ (recorded for RCA), KNICKERBOCKER HOLIDAY (with Burt Lancaster) and MORNING'S AT SEVEN. (Visit AnitaGillette.com for more information). She can also be seen in the films Boys on the Side, Shall We Dance? A Fitzgerald Family Christmas.

Penny Fuller won critical plaudits on Broadway for her portrayal of the outwardly sweet but inwardly subversive Eve Harrington in Applause (1970-1972), the musical version of All About Eve with Lauren Bacall as Margo Channing. Her last Broadway musical (to date) was Richard Rodgers' 1976 flop about Henry VIII, Rex, in which she appeared opposite Nicol Williamson and Glenn Close. (She has continued to work in musicals, however, including the original production of William Finn's A New Brain and a 1999 revival of Rodgers' Do I Hear a Waltz? at New Jersey's George Street Playhouse.) Recent years have found Miss Fuller back on Broadway, in the original productions of Wendy Wasserstein's An American Daughter (1997) and Neil Simon's The Dinner Party (2000); she was Tony-nominated for the latter. Off-Broadway appearances have included Three Viewings (1995) and Nicky Silver's unsettling Beautiful Child. She also has an extensive television and film career.
