LuPone will offer her acclaimed concert act Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda, which she debuted at Carnegie Hall several years ago. The concert, conceived and directed by Hairspray's Scott Wittman, features songs LuPone "could have played, should have played, did play and will play." Audiences can expect to hear tunes from Hair; Bye Bye Birdie; Funny Girl; West Side Story; Peter Pan; Evita; and Anything Goes. Musical director Chris Fenwick will accompany LuPone on piano; the concert utilizes musical arrangements that were penned by the late Dick Gallagher.
A Tony Award winner for her work in Evita, Patti LuPone also earned an Olivier Award for her performances in the West End productions of Les Misérables and The Cradle Will Rock. Her other theatrical credits include Sunset Boulevard, Anything Goes, Oliver!, Working, The Old Neighborhood, Master Class and Pal Joey. LuPone also headlined two solo Broadway concerts, Patti LuPone On Broadway and Matters of the Heart, and received glowing notices for her performance as Mrs. Lovett in the Lincoln Center concert version of Stephen Sondheim's Sweeney Todd and a Tony nomination for her performance in the recent revival of that Sondheim work. She was seen in the Kennedy Center's staging of Marc Blitzstein's Regina and recently joined Audra McDonald for Los Angeles Opera's production of Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht's Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny. LuPone was most recently on the New York stage in City Center's production of Gypsy.
