She is also the author of the New York Times best-selling autobiography, Patti LuPone: A Memoir. Tickets for this one-night-only concert are now on sale.

LuPone swept the 2008 theatre awards winning the Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Actress in a Musical and the Drama League Award for Distinguished Performance for her performance as Rose in the critically-acclaimed Broadway production of Gypsy. Most recently, she starred on Broadway in the musical Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown and earlier this spring, she appeared as Joanne in the New York Philharmonic’s concert production of Stephen Sondheim’s Company.

LuPone also made her debut with New York City Ballet in their new production of Weill’s The Seven Deadly Sins. She is also touring in a new concert with her Evita co-star Mandy Patinkin titled An Evening with Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin.
