The Evita and Gypsy star will call her book "Patti LuPone: A Memoir."

LuPone stated that the winning entry would receive a signed copy of the book, two tickets to see her next Broadway show (or one of her concerts near their hometown) and a personal congratulation.

Precilla Ng of Toronto, ON, came up with the winning title. LuPone said on her site, "Ms. Ng came up with the simplest and most elegant title. It says it all. Thank you Precilla. I look forward to meeting you at the performance of your choice."

Titles that were also in the running were "Entrances, Exits and Everything In Between / A Life, by Patti LuPone"; "A Theatre Life: On Either Side of Intermission"; "Eight Times a Week"; and "Five Minutes to Places - a life on the boards."

Honorable mentions went to "PATTI: In The Original Key"; "45 Miles" (The distance from Northport to Broadway Theatre); and "Real Women Play the Tuba."

Among the titles that LuPone said made her laugh are: "Peaks & Valleys of The Doll"; "Patti LuPone: Not Just a Tap-Dancing Fascist"; "Curtains Up - Cell Phones Off!"; "The LuPone Trio Minus Two"; "'SHUT UP, IT'S BEEN TWENTY-NINE YEARS!' - Trials and Tribulations of a Tony Award Winning Actress"; "Shut Up, It's Been 29 Years! A Life in the Theatre"; "Born With A Trunk: Theatrical Musings By A Big-Nosed Diva"; "Don't Cry For Me, For Me, For Me, For Meee!"; and "Mein Kampf."

LuPone previously told Playbill.com that Harmony Books, a Random House imprint, will publish the book that she is co-writing with Digby Diehl.
