Ring in the New Year with Broadway legend, two-time Tony winner Patti LuPone. Make the last moments of 2012 and the first of 2013 a time you'll never forget when Ms. LuPone presents a special encore performance of her celebrated show, Far Away Places, which proved to be the event of this year's cabaret season! Backed by a five-piece orchestra, Ms. LuPone will perform a mixture of contemporary songs from the worlds of pop and Broadway, as well as a selection of Paris and Berlin cabaret songs from the 30's and 40's. At this very special performance, look for a few musical additions to Far Away Places, the show of which The New York Times said: "Ms. LuPone generates more raw excitement than any other performer on the Broadway and cabaret axis. Her brilliant show... certifies Ms. LuPone's place in the lineage of quirky international chanteuses like Lotte Lenya, Marlene Dietrich and Edith Piaf, who, like Ms. LuPone, conquered show business with forceful, outsize personalities while playing by their own musical rules." On New Year's Eve with Patti, Anything Goes!
