One of those many highlighted performances was a 1997 televised solo concert featuring 2 time Tony and Olivier Award winning legend Patti LuPone. Filmed from the stage of the McCallum Theatre in Palm Desert, CA, AN EVENING WITH PATTI LUPONE featured the iconic performer belting out the best of the Great Bright Way. Accompanied by a small orchestra and a backup singing Ensemble, the special includes highlighted songs from LuPone’s unbelievable show biz career at the time including hits from….
It was released on VHS but never on DVD.
LuPone is set to return to Broadway this Fall continuing work on the Award winning gender-swap revival of Stephen Sondheim‘s Company. Previews will resume at Broadway’s Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre starting November 15th, 2021. From there, it will officially open on December 9th, 2021.
How fabulous is Patti LuPone?!!!
