#EncoresArchivesa?? Encores! did Can Can mainly because Patti LuPone agreed to star in it, and here she more than justifies the decision, singing one of Cole Porter's greatest love songs written to a city (see "I Happen to Like New York" for another). a?? a?? LuPone was so spectacular that during the final performance she earned an Encores! encore, which she decided to do spontaneously. The ensemble had to rush down from their dressing rooms to get back in place for the final chorus-a chaotic but astonishingly memorable moment. a?? a?? ?: Patti LuPone "I Love Paris"a?? Encores!
