Patti LuPone: Don't Monkey With Broadway
Patti LuPone imparts the aura of a New York class act. Her songs are propelled by emotional purpose, intensity…and enormous comic flair.

Singer and actress Patti LuPone is a multiple Tony and Grammy® Award winner, inducted into the American Theater Hall of Fame in 2006. In 2017 Patti LuPone starred in War Paint on Broadway and returns to London’s West End in September to play Joanne in Stephen Sondheim and George Furth's musical Company.
In Don’t Monkey with Broadway, Patti LuPone explores, through indelible interpretations of classic Broadway show tunes by the likes of Richard Rodgers, Lorenz Hart, Jule Styne, Stephen Schwartz, Charles Strouse, Leonard Bernstein, Stephen Sondheim, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin, how her life-long love affair with Broadway began and her concern for what Manhattan’s Theatre District - the Great White Way - is becoming today.
Few performers show the kind of dedication and commitment to their material, and to connecting with their audience. It’s little exaggeration to state that Patti LuPone has outdone herself with her new show, which debuted in New York to raucous cheers.
