Tony Award winners and original Evita co-stars Patti LuPone (Gypsy, Sweeney Todd, Anything Goes) and Mandy Patinkin (The Wild Party, Sunday in the Park With George) will bring their acclaimed concert act to Broadway's Ethel Barrymore Theatre beginning Nov. 16.

The concert, which will officially open Nov. 21, will play a 63-performance limited engagement through Jan. 13, 2012. The Broadway premiere follows acclaimed appearances across the US in Toronto, Australia and New Zealand.

In honor of the upcoming Evening with Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin, the Tony-winning performers got together to discuss what fans should expect from the Broadway concert at the Ethel Barrymore.

An Evening with Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin, according to press notes, "reunites these Tony Award-winning virtuosos (and lifelong friends) for the first time since Evita. Much more than a concert, this is a unique musical love story told entirely through a masterful selection of the greatest songs ever written for the stage. Funny, passionate, intimate and utterly unforgettable, this is An Evening no fan of musical theatre — or of these two acclaimed performers — can afford to miss."

The concert, which was conceived by Patinkin and musical director-pianist Paul Ford, also features direction by Patinkin and musical staging consulting by Ann Reinking.
