Gatewood, Johnson, and Lowe are three multifaceted writer/performers who are most well-known for their collaboration as the Apple Sisters.
Kimmy Gatewood, Rebekka Johnson, and Sarah Lowe met in 2007 in New York City where they performed at the People’s Improv Theatre. They all shared a love of singing, dancing, and old movie musicals, so they started a musical-comedy trio.
They became an instant critical and fan success, selling-out performances every week at the PIT, opening for Ingrid Michaelson at the Bowery Ballroom and Webster Hall, performances at sketch comedy festivals in New York, Portland, Charleston, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, and the prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, directed by Breaking Bad & Mr. Show’s Bob Odenkirk. In Los Angeles, their performances continued to sell out at the UCB theatre, Largo, and the Elephant Theatre.
Their talents have attracted the eye of stars like Ryan Gosling, Judd Apatow, Ed Helms, Rich Sommer,Ginnifer Goodwin, Olivia Wilde, Paul F. Tompkins, Jason Ritter, and Patton Oswalt, to name a few. They are the winners of the peer and audience voted ECNY awards for Best Musical Act and the New York Innovative Theatre Award for Best Original Music.
They’ve made appearances as The Apple Sisters on Ricki Lake, Home & Family, CurrentTV, Conan, as Andy Richter’s singing trio to get out of work, and in the deleted scenes of Bridesmaids. Their recent album ‘1943’ was called “A blueprint of how to make a great comedy album.” THE APPLE SISTERS also have a popular podcast on Earwolf that was named the number 2 podcast in Los Angeles by LA Weekly.
