Two-time Tony Award-winning actress Patti LuPone, who recently celebrated the release of her memoir, will perform on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" Sept. 17 as part of Broadway Week.

Broadway Week began Sept. 13 with performances from Memphis and Promises, Promises (Sept. 14) and continues with American Idiot (Sept. 15) and Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson (Sept. 16).

The week will culminate with theatre veteran LuPone belting out "Everything's Coming Up Roses" from her Tony-winning turn as Rose in Gypsy. A representative for LuPone stated that Fallon personally requested that LuPone perform the iconic song. The two will also sit for an interview.

LuPone returns to Broadway this fall in the starry world-premiere musical Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, which begins previews Oct. 5 at the Belasco Theatre. Her new book, "Patti LuPone A Memoir," was released Sept. 14.

Most recently seen in her Tony-winning turn in the Arthur Laurents-helmed Broadway revival of Gypsy, LuPone has starred in the world premieres of Sunset Boulevard and Les Miserables, as well as productions of Anything Goes, Oliver!, Working, The Old Neighborhood, Master Class, The Cradle Will Rock, Sweeney Todd and Pal Joey. She earned her first Tony Award for Evita in 1980. Her touring concerts include An Evening with Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin, Matters of the Heart and The Gypsy in My Soul.
