    What the popular press said...

    "Generously gifted singers who invest themselves in music with a commitment that never flags and an emotional intensity that can scorch."
    Charles Isherwood for New York Times

    "The power-couple concert shimmers with charm, magic and a genuine chummy closeness."
    Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

    "You may have heard about the Australian star currently setting Broadway on fire. The heat that emanates from “An Evening With Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin,” three blocks away from Hugh Jackman’s theater, is more of the smoldering kind — but in its own way it’s just as intense."
    Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

    "Like peanut butter and jelly, Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin are two great tastes that taste great together."
    David Sheward for Back Stage

    "Smart, warm, deeply satisfying.
    Robert Feldberg for The Record

    "For audience members expecting razzle and dazzle in their Broadway shows, the approach may not resonate. Hardcore fans, however, will find it one very enchanted evening."
    Roma Torre for NY1

    "Fans of LuPone and Patinkin should find their show a highly enjoyable (if not revelatory) session."
    Michael Sommers for Newsroom Jersey

    "You gotta absolutely love them to be anything but underwhelmed by this lazily conceived valentine."
    David Rooney for Hollywood Reporter

    "LuPone and Patinkin are in the ... rarefied class of theater stars, but their present vehicle is merely likably friendly."
    Steven Suskin for Variety
