What Is An Evening With Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin Like?
The focus in this concert is on the musical gifts of the two stars: Accompanied by piano and bass, LuPone and Patinkin roam a stage decorated only with “ghost lights” as they perform songs by Rodgers & Hammerstein, Sondheim and more. Among the many highlights are their take on iconic numbers from Company (“Getting Married Today”) and Follies (“The God-Why-Don’t-You-Love-Me Blues”) and a show-stopping section from Evita. For anyone who loves musical theater, this is a don’t-miss Broadway event.
