"The Lady with the Torch," Olivier and Tony Award winner Patti LuPone's latest solo recording is available on the Ghostlight Records label. The CD features orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick and musical direction by Chris Fenwick. The single disc was based on LuPone's acclaimed concert act of the same name, which was conceived and directed by Scott Wittman.
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 Lés 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, also portrayed Mama Rose in the Ravinia Festival's recent mounting of Gypsy.
