Anita Gillette AND Penny Fuller: SIN TWISTERS-AUGUST 16 AT 7:00 PM

Two cherished icons of Broadway will regale the audience with adventures from the Golden Age of Broadway as well as riffs on LA, London, film, TV, motherhood, love, and loss. Anita Gillette and Penny Fuller have often been mistaken for each other (although one is 3 inches taller and the other a redhead.) These vibrant and savvy veterans of over two dozen Broadway productions have even tackled some of the same parts, including the plum role of Sally Bowles in the original Broadway production of Cabaret.

Sin Twisters is a must for anyone who loves musical theater and show biz lore-and who cherishes the enduring bonds of friendship. Music Direction by Paul Greenwood.

Featuring Anita Gillette and Penny Fuller.

Bonnie Milligan-AUGUST 18, 19, 24 & 30 AT 9:45 PM

Bonnie Milligan made one of the most critically acclaimed and talked about Broadway debuts of the 2018-2019 theatrical season in the musical comedy Head Over Heels. Her breakout performance as the beautiful, but vain, Princess Pamela in the Go-Go's musical lit up the stage, garnering her a Theater World Award, along with Drama League and Outer Critics nominations.

Bonnie's prior Feinstein's/54 Below cabaret appearances, Bonnie Milligan and Natalie Walker Were Always Supposed to Do a Show on September 6th and Have Been Planning It For Months and The Graveyard Smash, with onstage partner Natalie Walker, were no-holds barred, musical extravaganzas that featured roof-raising vocals and outrageous comedy-and played to raucous and adoring standing-room only crowds. Bonnie is also known for her 54 collaborations with Matt Doyle. Her first-ever solo show was sold out at the venue in 2014.
