Hilarious New Clip From Ben Rimalower's PATTI ISSUES

Hilarious New Clip From Ben Rimalower's PATTI ISSUESPerformer and monologist Ben Rimalower pays tribute to legendary leading lady Patti LuPone in his hit solo show PATTI ISSUES and a hilarious new SWEENEY TODD-centric clip of the autobiographical evening currently on world tour is now available to view.

Rimalower recounts a hilarious and fascinating story about acting as an assistant to director Lonny Price on the last New York Philharmonic production of Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler's SWEENEY TODD: THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET, starring George Hearn and Patti LuPone herself.

"But I can't think of anything but that door in front of me - that door that Patti LuPone is going to walk through at any second," Rimalower vividly recounts at the outset.

Then, the diva arrives!

"She is everything I dreamed she would be," Rimalower reveals - and more!

Of note, Ben Rimalower's tribute to legendary stage and screen star Patti LuPone began well over a year ago as merely a four-performance showpiece for the passionate monologist and humorist - who recounts his adoration of the star and how her presence as a performer helped him through some rough periods in his life and bonded him to his own gay father over the course of the show - before it became an overnight downtown hit, eventually running all the way to late last year when Rimalower was replaced by Robin De Jesus, who performed for a few weeks in the role, as well.
