LuPone is debuting her newest concert act, The Gypsy in My Soul June 20-21 at the Orleans Casino & Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. Joe Thalken is musical director.
In The Gypsy in My Soul, press notes state, "LuPone will perform songs that have long been associated with her four-decade Broadway career, as well as some of her personal pop favorites. 'I Get A Kick Out Of You' from Anything Goes, 'As Long As He Needs Me' from Oliver! and 'Some People' from Gypsy are some of the well-known show stoppers the two time Tony Award-winner will perform. In between musical numbers, LuPone will engage the audience as she shares backstage stories and personal reflections from her illustrious career."
The award-winning actress will then bring her Gypsy in My Soul act to The Music Box at The Borgata Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, NJ, Aug. 15; the University of North Carolina's Aycock Auditorium in Greensboro, NC, Sept. 26; the Tennessee Williams Theatre in Key West, FL, Feb. 17, 2010; and the Music Center at Strathmore in N.
