An Evening with Patti LuPone & Mandy Patinkin



Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin are to reunite on Broadway when they bring their concert show An Evening with Patti LuPone & Mandy Patinkin to the Great White Way.

The concert show described in press notes as "a funny, passionate, intimate and unique musical love story told entirely through a masterful selection of some of the greatest songs ever written for the stage," will play a limited 63 performances at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre, where it will open on 21 Nov 2011, following previews from 16 Nov 2011, and close on 13 Jan 2012.

"I so adore working with Mandy," said Patti LuPone. "He's always been a risk taker, a quality I love best in an actor. I treasure our partnership which began in Evita and which today is stronger than ever. And that's rare."

Mandy Patinkin said "To be onstage with Patti is as good as it gets for me. When I look into her eyes, I'm 30 years younger instantly. We're right back in time and I'm just in heaven. I'm only sad when the evening's over."
