 An Interview with Patti LuPone by Richard Duckett of the Worcester Telegram & Gazette

Two-time Tony Award winner Patti LuPone brings her new show, "Don't Monkey with Broadway," to Worcester, exploring classic Broadway tunes and hits by Richard Rodgers, Jule Styne, Stephen Schwartz, Leonard Bernstein, Stephen Sondheim, Cole Porter, Lorenz Hart, Irving Berlin, and others. Hear in her own words how she got hooked on Broadway and what she thinks of it today.

Patti LuPone's most recent Broadway appearances include David Mamet’s The Anarchist and the new musical Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, for which she was nominated for Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards. Other recent NY stage appearances include her debut with the New York City Ballet as guest soloist in their new production of The Seven Deadly Sins and her performance as Joanne in the New York Philharmonic’s production of Company. Winner of the Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Actress in a Musical and the Drama League Award for Outstanding Performance of the Season for her performance as Madame Rose in the most recent Broadway production of Gypsy, her other stage credits include her debut with the Los Angeles Opera in Weill-Brecht’s Mahagonny, the world premiere of Jake Heggie’s opera To Hell and Back with San Francisco’s Baroque Philharmonia Orchestra, Mrs. Lovett in John Doyle’s production of Sweeney Todd.

"No one would ever accuse of Patti LuPone of “monkeying around” on stage. Few performers show the kind of dedication and commitment to their material, and to connecting with their audience, as this Tony Award-winning star. "—Brian Scott Lipton, Theater Pizzazz
