The acclaimed singing actress is offering The Lady with the Torch through April 14. The evening was conceived and is directed by Tony Award winner Scott Wittman with musical direction by Joseph Thalken, orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick and dialogue by Jeffrey Richman.

LuPone, according to press notes, "performs an eclectic collection of torch songs by such composers and lyricists as Arthur Schwartz, Howard Dietz, Jule Styne, Sammy Cahn, Billy Barnes, Harold Arlen, George and Ira Gershwin, and Cole Porter."

LuPone is a Tony Award winner for her performances in Evita and Gypsy and an Olivier winner for her work in Les Miserables and The Cradle Will Rock. Read more about the award-winning artist's career in the Playbill Vault.
