Anita Gillette delightfully intersperses funny stories about Irving Berlin with songs that America sang, which spanned the more than the 50 years he actively wrote.

Known for her “funny,” “off-beat,” or “deliciously goofy” performances on, Broadway and Off-Broadway, stages, television and movie screens, Anita Gillette has added the cabaret stage to her list of artistic outlets. Gillette’s “mastery of comedic timing and dramatic power” has been demonstrated in shows ranging from Broadway’s original 1959 Gypsy (as a replacement) and Neil Simon’s 1977 Chapter Two; Off Broadway’s John Guare 1976 work Body Parts at the Public and Dan LeFranc’s 2012 The Big Meal; and on screen as the delectable mistress Mona in 1987’s Moonstruck. (Steketee, Theater Pizzazz) • Cast as the daughter in Mr. President, Berlin’s last Broadway production 55 years ago, she uses her warm and friendly relationship with him as a backdrop for a 90-minute tribute to the man Jerome Kern said “is American music.” She delightfully intersperses funny stories about Berlin with songs that America sang which spanned the more than the 50 years he actively wrote. • When Gillette asked Berlin, “What kind of songs do you write?,” his response was, “Hits.” Gillette performs them, accompanied by a “marvelous” band.
