PlayBlog Patti LuPone Talks Memoir and Broadway Return
Could two-time Tony Award-winning actress Patti LuPone be returning to Broadway soon? The Gypsy and Evita star hinted about the possibility during an interview at BookExpo America.

LuPone was discussing her upcoming autobiography, "Patti LuPone: A Memoir," and took audience questions following her interview. A fan asked if she had plans for another Broadway show and LuPone replied, "Yes, kind of, maybe, who knows. I can't talk about it because the contract isn't signed, but there is a possibility."

Most recently, LuPone participated in readings of the new musical adaptation of Pedro Almodóvar's 1988 film Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown. The musical, written by David Yazbek (music) and Jeffrey Lane (book/lyrics), will arrive at the Belasco Theatre Oct. 2 under the direction of Tony Award winner Bartlett Sher.

In discussing her memoir LuPone also revealed she has completed the audio version of the book, which captures the tome in its entirety. The actress also states that there are two chapters in the book devoted to Sunset Boulevard.
