Tony Award-winning Broadway star Patti LuPone, the original Evita and fresh off her rapturously received, role-defining stint as Mama Rose in Gypsy, takes us on a high-spirited tour of songs and roles that she “could have played, should have played, did play, and will play” with selections from Hair, Bye Bye Birdie, Funny Girl, West Side Story, Peter Pan, Evita, Anything Goes, and more. Earning an Olivier Award for her performances in London’s West End of Les Misérables and The Cradle Will Rock, she has also headlined solo Broadway concerts and received a Tony nomination for her role in the 2006 smash hit revival of Sweeney Todd. “Few have the knockout punch of LuPone.” (The Washington Post)
