“Patti LuPone imparts the aura of a
New York class act. Her songs are propelled by emotional purpose,
intensity, both ardent and burning, and enormous comic flair.” (New York Times)
Singer and actress Patti LuPone’s
storied career in Broadway and Hollywood has spanned over four decades. A
fireball of talent and a musical force to be reckoned with, Patti
LuPone is one of the greatest performers in modern musical theater.
Since establishing herself with a Tony Award-winning performance as
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Evita, she has impressed audiences and critics alike in Les Miserables, Sunset Boulevard, Sweeney Todd and Gypsy (for which she won another Tony Award in 2008).
In “Don’t Monkey with Broadway,”
Patti LuPone explores–through indelible interpretations of classic
Broadway show tunes–how her lifelong love affair with Broadway began,
and her concern for what the Great White Way is becoming today. “This
show is about as close to perfection as you’re likely to get,” said the Philadelphia Inquirer.
This concert is sponsored by Dr. Eva Pressman and Dr. Seth Zeidman.
