Andrew Blau: Patti LuPone
Jon Rybka-Wachhaus: Patti is the obvious choice. I mean it could be her "Norma Desmond" that she never got to play on Broadway.
Brian Cullen: Diva on Broadway = Patti LuPone. The defense rests
Pygmalion Fessas: Patti Lupone

Patti LuPone, the two-time Tony Award winner who knocked-out audiences in Evita and Gypsy, said she previously auditioned for the role. The stage veteran's resumé boasts such roles as Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard and Maria Callas in Master Class.
