Tickets are now on sale for the March 20 engagement featuring Patti LuPone (together with musical director David Gallagher) in her own show, Matters of the Heart, at the Paper Mill Playhouse. LuPone's one-night only engagement at New Jersey's State Theatre follows a successful staging of the same show at Lincoln Center's Vivian Beaumont Theatre this past fall. Tickets are available for $45, $65 and $90, either at the box office or on-line.
LuPone's show at Lincoln Center included Rodgers and Hammerstein's "I'm In Love with A Wonderful Guy," Randy Newman's "Real Emotional Girl," Stephen Sondheim's "Being Alive," John Bucchino's "Playbill," Judy Collins' "My Father," and Gilbert O'Sullivan's "Alone Again (Naturally)." Her recently released her latest CD "Matters of the Heart" (LayZLay Records/Varese Sarabande), was named one of the best recordings of 1999 by the Times of London and Time Out/New York.
