Barr and Incammicia created the characters of Astoria Queens housewives Anita M. Buffem and Gina Marie Rittale in their popular podcast "Sunday Morning Mimosa," which the duo transformed into their irreverent and heartwarming live stage shows that have been seen at the D-Lounge at the Daryl Roth Theatre and venues across New York City.
The 11:30 PM holiday spectacular promises appearances by Tori Scott, Marti Gould Cummings, Emma Craig, Briana Davis, Joanna Barratt, The Parodivas (Jason Schmidt and Darlene Rae Heller) and more.
Here's how the evening is billed: "Starring the glamorous, one time JCPenney model Anita M. Buffem (Barr) and her 3rd best friend the distraught mother of two, Gina Marie Rittale (Incammicia). Join these two gossiping gals from Queens as they sing their way through your holiday favorites and share their life stories. These showgirls have done it all, from touring New Jersey as chorus girls to being on the run from the Italian League, and settling down as house wives in Astoria. Will Anita connive her way to getting exactly what she wants from her 2nd husband for Chanukah and Christmas? Will the stressed out Gina Marie get her ultimate christmas wish and dodge the IRS, again?"
The duo regularly perform a catalogue of songs that range from classics by Rosemary Clooney to pop hits from Lady Gaga.
There is a $25 cover and a two-drink minimum. 54 Below is located at 254 W. 54th Street. For more information and tickets, visit 54Below.com.
