WATCH: “Company” star Patti LuPone has a beautiful message: “Welcome back to Broadway!”


Broadway legend Patti LuPone is returning to The Great White Way this fall in Company. The musical was in previews and 10 days away from its Broadway opening when the pandemic shut all shows down. LuPone had already won the Olivier Award for the London production of the show so there’s a good chance she could win her third Tony Award next year and first in the featured actress in a musical category.

Her Tony wins were for Evita and Gypsy and she earned nominations for The Robber Bridegroom, Anything Goes, Sweeney Todd, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, and War Paint. She’s also starred in Master Class, Noises Off, and The Old Neighborhood, among other productions.

LuPone says in the video: “If there’s an upside from having to be away from my spiritual home for so long, it was that it made me realize how much theater means to me.So I speak on behalf of our entire community when I say welcome back to Broadway. When we’re together again, it’ll be one hell of a show.”
