AN EVENING WITH PATTI LUPONE AND MANDY PATINKIN OPENS ON BROADWAY NOVEMBER 21 PREVIEWS BEGIN NOVEMBER 16, 2011 AT THE BARRYMORE THEATRE FOR 63 PERFORMANCES ONLY!
For those of our local theatre lovers who may be planning a trip to NYC. Don’t miss the Theatre Chat “hottest Broadway ticket in town“. Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin reunite on Broadway for AN EVENING WITH PATTI LUPONE AND MANDY PATINKIN. Two Broadway legends who first appeared together giving Tony Award winning performances in Evita, will bring their critically acclaimed theatre concert to the Barrymore Theatre (243 West 47th Street) for 63 performances only beginning Wednesday, November 16 at 2pm through Friday, January 13. Opening night is set for Monday, November 21. Much more than a concert, AN EVENING WITH PATTI LUPONE AND MANDY PATINKIN is a funny, passionate, intimate and unique musical love story told entirely through a masterful selection of some of the greatest songs ever written for the stage.
“I so adore working with Mandy,” said Patti LuPone. “He’s always been a risk taker, a quality I love best in an actor. I treasure our partnership which began in Evita and which today is stronger than ever. And that’s rare. “Mandy Patinkin said “To be onstage with Patti is as good as it gets for me. When I look into her eyes, I’m 30 years younger instantly. We’re right back in time and I’m just in heaven. I’m only sad when the evening’s over.” The Broadway premiere follows acclaimed appearances across the US, in Toronto, Australia and New Zealand.
“AN EVENING WITH PATTI LUPONE AND MANDY PATINKIN exploits the subtle pleasures of performers who share a style (accomplished), a point of view (cosmopolitan) and level of talent (enormous).” –Judith Newmark, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, “These two music and theatre legends deliver a sparsely elegant master class in the art of conjuring emotional truth in dramatic song.” –Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times, “Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin, together or apart, possess some of the greatest talents ever seen on Broadway…Patinkin and LuPone are the embodiment of Broadway. And while they have nothing to prove, nothing to remind us of, they meet the challenge they lay out for themselves, and they demonstrate what it is to be stars, to be Patinkin and LuPone.” –Tony Brown, Cleveland Plain Dealer, “Quite simply, two of the giants of modern musical theatre are offering us two hours of non-stop music, charm, laughter and tears without a second of wasted effort or empty banter… Just go and see it.” –Richard Ouzounian, Toronto Star.
