Tonight, I'm going to see Patti LuPone perform her show The Gypsy in my soul at Symphony Hall. Earlier today a friend offered the extra pair after the couple who originally bought them realized they had a conflict and would not be able to attend. I'm no Broadway aficionado, but Patti LuPone is legendary so I'm looking forward to tonight's performance. Look Mom - I'm trying new things and 'broadening my horizons'.
According to the write-up, Patti LuPone will be accompanied by a 10-piece band and will sing songs from musicals including Gypsy, Anything Goes, and Oliver. I'm sure I won't recognize many of the songs, but I certainly look forward to the performance; hopefully she'll also sing "Don't Cry for me Argentina".
I've just returned from the Patti LuPone show in Boston at Symphony Hall, and I have to say it was BRILLIANT. I really couldn't believe how beautiful she sang and was surprised when the 2 hour show ended. I have a terrible memory so I can't recall all the songs she performed, but if tickets are available in your town - I'd really recommend checking out her show.
