The Broadway at Birdland concert series is proud to announce that legendary Broadway and television stars Anita Gillette and Penny Fuller will return to the stage in Sin Twisters, Too on Monday, May 22 at 7pm.

Two Broadway legends, Penny Fuller, currently in the highly acclaimed Broadway revival of Sunday in the Park with George, and Anita Gillette, fresh from the TV series, CHICAGO MED, take the stage of Birdland with a reprise of their hilarious and touching duo show, Sin Twisters, Too, regaling us with more adventures of the Golden Age of Broadway (both were Sally Bowles in the original production of Cabaret), as well as riffs on LA, London, film, TV, motherhood, love, loss and friendship, (and, like the show’s title, peppered with a spoonerism or two). These two cherished icons of Broadway and Hollywood have often been mistaken for each other (although one is 3 inches taller and the other a redhead.) Sin Twisters, Too celebrates the similarities and the surprising differences of these two remarkable artists and women in zesty story and harmonious song. Directed by Barry Kleinbort, with musical direction by Paul Greenwood.

Anita Gillette debuted her one woman show After All at Birdland and won a MAC Award and a Bistro (from ASCAP). She has played Feinsteins, 54 Below, The Metropolitan Room, Cape May Stage, London’s St. James Studio and Don’t Tell Mama. Probably best known as Miss Mona in “Moonstruck,” or Miss Mitzi in “Shall We Dance,” her other feature films include: “The Fitzgerald Family Christmas,” “Boys On The Side,” “Larger Than Life,” “She’s the One,” “The Guru,” “Bob Roberts,” and “The Great New Wonderful.” She starred in fourteen Broadway shows including: Chapter Two (Tony Nomination, LA Drama Critics Award), Cabaret (Sally Bowles), Carnival, Gypsy, Guys & Dolls, Don’t Drink The Water, All American, Jimmy, They’re Playing Our Song, Brighten Beach Memoirs, and Mr. President. She was Tina Fey’s mother on 30 Rock, a series regular on Quincy, Almost Grown and more. Episodic work includes MODERN FAMILY, BLUE BLOODS, CHICAGO MED, ELEMENTARY, SEX & THE CITY, COLD CASE, WOMEN’S MURDER CLUB, FRASIER, LAW & ORDER, MAD ABOUT YOU. She has been on every major game show including PYRAMID, PASSWORD, MATCHGAME, TO TELL THE TRUTH, WHAT’S MY LINE, etc., etc. She was a foil for Johnny Carson for at least 50 TONIGHT shows.

Penny Fuller can currently be seen on Broadway in the acclaimed revival of Sunday in the Park with George. She began her Broadway career starring in BAREFOOT IN THE PARK, three Shakespeare-in-the-Park productions, and the musicals CABARET, REX, and APPLAUSE (Tony nomination for “Eve Harrington”). Her television work garnered her six Emmy nominations and the Emmy Award for ABC’s THE ELEPHANT MAN. Recent Broadway: Horton Foote’s DIVIDING THE ESTATE, Neil Simon’s THE DINNER PARTY (Tony nomination). Lincoln Center: William Finn’s A NEW BRAIN. Off-Broadway: LOVE, LOSS, AND WHAT I WORE, BEAUTIFUL CHILD, SOUTHERN COMFORTS, THREE VIEWINGS, NEW ENGLAND.

With the encouragement of cabaret director, Barry Kleinbort she has embarked on a new career as cabaret artist in New York clubs and theaters.
