Hey everyone, I'm new, so nice to meet you all!

Was just wondering, with Patti LuPone hot off of American Horror story, are there any chances of seeing her in a musical on Broadway again? Any rumors flying around?

Thanks!

I have to think she's considering retiring soon. I hope she does one last hurrah before she goes.

What in the hell would make you think that? She's constantly working.

Christ, you truly are insufferable. Why don't you just go back to making racist comments and remind people why they hated you to begin with.

Why am I insufferable for suggesting that a 65 year old woman might consider retiring from the stage? After all, the Merm retired at 62.

I'm not saying she would retire from concerts or movies. But musicals are hard for woman of a certain age. I think she'll do one more, and that will be it.

Why so angry, Jordan Catalano?

I'm not angry at all. I just think you're an insufferable twit who has never had any idea what you're talking about.

Ok. In that case, you can use that free time learning the definition of the word "bullying".

Why would Patti ever retire? Unlike dancing, stage actors (and screen for that matter) can work really their entire lives. I highly doubt Pattiis planning an exit anytime soon.
I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being. ``oscar wilde``

I meant retire from musicals. Like Ms. Stritch said "If you wanna do musical comedy and ya wanna do it well, ya have to live like a f**king nun!"

I just think when someone gets to 65 eight shows a week two matinees gets to be a bit much. Pure speculation on my part. You could be right.

1. Stritch is really not a model for anyone. 2. Sixty now is nothing like it was when Merman hit that decade. 3. LuPone's voice is remarkably intact. She's recently begun singing stuff from "Evita" again.

On the other hand, major roles for sixty-something women aren't that easy to come by. Still I don't think retirement is something she's anywhere near thinking about (and nor should it be).

I love Stritchie!

Though I am worried that she appears to have fallen off the wagon.

Barbara Cook still perform. I believe that Patti will most likely continue to perform at least in concerts.
"Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around."

She's also proven that she's willing to take featured roles if it's a project or creative team she's excited about.
