Like Mother, Like Son: Patti LuPone's Son Josh Johnston Tours with The Acting Company

Like Mother, Like Son: Patti LuPone's Son Josh Johnston Tours with The Acting CompanyForty-one years after Patti LuPone went on tour with The Acting Company, her son, Joshua Johnston, is doing the same in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead (opened on Sunday) and Hamlet (opening tonight) at the Pearl Theater, prior to a four-month national tour.

"My four years with the Company taught me practically everything I know about stagecraft," said LuPone. "They are lessons I apply to this day. I am thrilled that Josh has those same opportunities. He's the first second-generation member!"

Others on that first tour included Kevin Kline, David Schramm and David Ogden Stiers.
