Patti LuPone and Joshua Johnston
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!"
Deaf West’s production of SPRING AWAKENING floored the critics when it premiered in California, prompting the Los Angeles Times to write, "It's hard to enumerate all the ways in which Deaf West's SPRING AWAKENING is so very, very good." Now this unapologetically brilliant new production is coming to New York.
