LuPone won her first Tony Award the year before for her performance as Eva Peron. She would go on to win again in 2008 for her portrayal of Madame Rose in the most recent Broadway production of Gypsy. In London, she originated the role of Fantine in Les Misérables, first with the Royal Shakespeare Company, followed by a run in the West End. LuPone won an Olivier Award for her performance, as well as for her performance the same season in the Acting Company’s production of The Cradle Will Rock.
The Broadway favorite was most recently seen opposite Christine Ebersole in the new musical War Paint; both actors received Tony nominations for their performances.
