Showtune Sunday: All About Patti Lupone!
Patti Lupone made headlines last week for telling an unmasked audience member to “get the f*ck out” of the theater if they didn’t want to follow the rules.
It was another example of this legend of the Broadway stage and London stage taking a stand.
But I don’t want to let her outspokenness overshadow one of the greatest careers in the theater in history and one that is still going strong. Last week the two-time Tony winner received her eighth Tony nomination for Company and has got to be considered the front-runner to take the award for featured actress in a musical. She’s already won the Olivier Award (her second) for the role in the London production.
Below are performances from some of the great star’s most memorable shows including Sweeney Todd, Evita, Sunset Boulevard, Gypsy, Anything Goes, and Les Miserables.
Enjoy this singular talent!
