Can't get enough of Patti LuPone? A documentary following the legendary performer has just been released on Youtube, titled 'Entrances, Exits, and Everything In Between.' Creator Josh Johnston writes: 'What she and I have collaborated on is our effort to show aspiring performers and fans of the arts what it's like in the shoes of a veteran of the craft: everything from the Sunset lows to the Rainbow Highs of performing, Patti LuPone has seen and lived it all.' Check out the third episode below!
Patti LuPone's performance career has spanned 30 years and partnerships with such luminaries as Mandy Patinkin, David Mamet, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Stephen Sondheim. The powerhouse performer recently won the Tony, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Drama League's Best Actress in a Musical Award for her role as Mama Rose in the critically-acclaimed Broadway production of the Jule Styne-Stephen Sondheim-Arthur Laurents musical Gypsy.
LuPone's other recent stage credits include her debut with the Los Angeles Opera in Kurt Weill's Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny; the world premiere of Jake Heggie's new opera To Hell and Back with San Francisco's Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra; Mrs. Lovett in John Doyle's award-winning Broadway production of Stephen Sondheim's Sweeney Todd (a role which garnered her Tony, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle Award nominations for Best Actress in a Musical and a Drama League Award for Outstanding Contribution to Musical Theatre); a critically-acclaimed performance as Fosca in a concert version of Stephen Sondheim's Passion, which was also broadcast on PBS' Live From Lincoln Center; and a multi-city tour of her theatrical concert "Matters of the Heart." She most recently returned to Broadway in 'An Evening with Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin.'
