The 63-performance engagement will officially open Nov. 21 and continue through Jan. 13, 2012.
An Evening with Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin, according to previous 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 Ford, also features direction by Patinkin and musical staging consulting by Ann Reinking.
Following Broadway, the concert act will again hit the road. The post-Broadway itinerary follows:
Jan. 17-22, 2012 at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in Kansas City, MO
Feb. 14, 2012 at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall in Sarasota, FL
