Forty-one years after Patti LuPone went on tour with The Acting Company, her son Joshua Johnston is doing the same.

He is appearing in repertory stagings of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead and Hamlet at the Pearl Theater prior to a four-month national tour.

"My four years with the Company taught me practically everything I know about stagecraft," said Ms. LuPone. "They are lessons I apply to this day. I am thrilled that Josh has those same opportunities. He's the first second-generation member!"
