Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin Reunite on Broadway

An Evening with Patti LuPone & Mandy Patinkin

Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin reunite on Broadway for An Evening with Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin, which begins in previews at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre in New York City tonight, with the official Opening Night slated for Monday, November 21. Patinkin, who has released five solo albums on Nonesuch Records, and LuPone, who can be heard on Nonesuch's 2006 Broadway cast recording of Stephen Sondheim's Sweeney Todd, first appeared together giving Tony Award–winning performances in the original production of Evita.

An Evening with Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin is a musical love story told entirely through a selection of beloved songs written for the stage by the likes of Sondheim, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Kander & Ebb, Loesser, and more. The Broadway premiere follows acclaimed appearances across the US, in Toronto, Australia, and New Zealand. The Los Angeles Times says: “These two music and theatre legends deliver a sparsely elegant master class in the art of conjuring emotional truth in dramatic song.” Variety calls it "an evening of scrumptious storytelling." Performances at the Barrymore run through January 13.

LuPone and Patinkin spoke with the New York Times' Dave Itzkoff about the show and their friendship, now more than three decades strong. You can read what they have to say at nytimes.com.
