Patti LuPone Comes to Melbourne and Sydney this June

This June, renowned singer and actress Patti LuPone will bring her critically acclaimed concert, her love letter to the Great White Way, Don't Monkey with Broadway to the Sydney Opera House and Arts Centre Melbourne.

LuPone, the multiple Tony and Grammy® Award winner, will explore, through indelible interpretations of classic Broadway show tunes by the likes of Richard Rodgers, Lorenz Hart, Jule Styne, Stephen Schwartz, Charles Strouse, Leonard Bernstein, Stephen Sondheim, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin, how her life-long love affair with Broadway began and her concern for what Manhattan's Theatre District - the Great White Way - is becoming today.

Few performers show the kind of dedication and commitment to their material, and to connecting with their audience. It's little exaggeration to state that Patti LuPone has outdone herself with her new show, which debuted in New York to raucous cheers.

Patti LuPone most recently starred on Broadway as cosmetics pioneer Helena Rubinstein in the musical War Paint and will be returning to London's West End stage in Marianne Elliot's new production of the Stephen Sondheim-George Furth musical Company this year.

LuPone is a two-time Tony Award winner for her performances as Madame Rose in the most recent Broadway revival of the musical Gypsy and for her now legendary performance in the title role in Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's Evita. She reprised her performance for local audiences during Evita's original Australian run in the early '80's. Since then, LuPone has graced stages and screens across the world with credits covering film, TV, recordings and theatre. In 2010, she released her autobiography, Patti LuPone: A Memoir which became a New York Times bestseller.

Patti LuPone performs Don't Monkey with Broadway at the Sydney Opera House on Saturday 23 June and Arts Centre Melbourne on Saturday 30 June. Tickets on sale now at ticketmaster.com.au.
