Patti LuPone trashes Sherie Rene Scott?#1

Shady boots LuPone is serving up some delicious English tea on Sherie Rene Scott in her London show with Seth Rudetsky.

Critic Mark Shenton @ShentonStage tweeted:

"We also got some priceless dish on the star of the last B'way musical LuPone appeared in, WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN. I couldn't possibly repeat what she LuPone told us! But it was a stunner! She takes no prisoners. Utterly frank and fearless."

C'mon Seth, or one of our cousins across the pond, dish the tea because I'm dying to catch that shade. I can't wait to hear the gruesome gossip on the Great Scott!

Anybody?

Now I love LuPone as much as anyone else, But the girl needs to get a grip and stop trashing everyone. It will stop her from working.

All she seems to do in her book is moan about one person or another! Maybe its about time people did a book or show on whats its like working with Patti, I'm sure she can a handful to say the least.

Love to hear what this is, I've worked with Sherie and I can't recall her being anything other than pleasant.

Considering that Scott is the only member of the cast that has said Women on the Verge was a **** show, I am not suprised. She stated in her Broadway.com interview Yazbeck was too enamoured with the supporting characters (Lupone among others) then he was with the plot which revolved around Peppa (scott). She went on to state that due to the fact Yazbeck did not have an out of town tryout with their gigantic set to work out the kinks he was never able to focus the plot. They had so many problems with the set that previews were more fucused on fixing technical problems then plot problems which is what previews are for. Part of the problem for Yazbeck at least in Scott's eyes was the A List talent who each had to have their spotlight moment so he couldn't cut their songs without risking them leaving the project.

Yeah, maybe she should save it for anonymous theater forums.

Reading comprehension alert. Shenton tweets that Patti spilled dish on Sherie. Spilling dish about someone is not nec. trashing her.

In response to bdn223: Yasbeck had nothing to do with the set or the plot as he was the music/lyric writer. Perhaps you or Ms. Scott meant to say Jeffrey Lane who actually wrote the book. Or perhaps you or she meant Bartlett Sher who directed the production and was at the helm. The plot line of the show actually got strengthened through previews but the one thing that never changed was Ms. Scott's lackluster portrayal of Pepa. She committed the most egregious sin in a musical - she was boring. And she had lots of songs to sing while being boring. It doesn't surprise me that she thought it was "a ***** show," because that's what I thought of her performance. Luckily, the others in the show rose above that and created something interesting, though the work was flawed.

"Now I love LuPone as much as anyone else, But the girl needs to get a grip and stop trashing everyone. It will stop her from working."

You seem to project that Patti LuPone is trashing someone, which has yet to be determined. Maybe you are the one unfairly trashing someone?

"All she seems to do in her book is moan about one person or another! Maybe its about time people did a book or show on whats its like working with Patti, I'm sure she can a handful to say the least. "

A handful in a good way. I've got friends who've worked with her in Gypsy and a few other shows that have nothing bad to say about her, that she's a true professional and doesn't have time for monkey business. Actually, all I've heard about working with LuPone on a show is pretty much boring, drama free stuff.

As soon as The Pone and Missy B were cast in WOTVOANB, I knew Sherie was doomed. I'd have been pissed if I was her.
They made so many mistakes on WOMEN and it showed big time The show was a mess.

Didn't most people say Scott looked like she didn't want to be there most nights? And really, the creative team would have been crazy to cut something like "Model Behavior," which by all accounts stopped the show (in the best way possible) and is one of the most hilarious numbers I've heard from a recent musical in a while.

Patti LuPone comes across as an incredibly insecure person in her memoir and in many interviews. I wouldn't say she trashes a lot of people, but she plays the victim often.

I agree that once Patti and Laura were cast it became the LuPone/Benanti show with the writers scrambling to keep them happy. Scott got the short end of the stick creatively-its no wonder she withered up on stage.

Scott is a much more gifted and nuanced singer and storyteller than LuPone without question. Scott works best with close collaboration. That didn't happen in WOTV.

That same reporter tweeted that they found out Patti was "sounded out" to replace Elena Roger in Evita and Patti turned it down because it wasn't enough money so I have no idea what was going on there last night.

Ms LuPone has a tendency to attack anyone better looking and more talented than she is, so basically every single human being on earth and most species of animals is a target.
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

An obnoxious tweet desperate for attention. So LuPone may have said something about someone from a show they worked on "that can't POSSIBLY be repeated". Meanwhile, people here talk trash about LuPone pretty much every day. So what? It's nothing more than a twerp singing "I know something you don't know" and skipping away. I met Patti a few times as well. And she said stuff to me about a certain Tony-winning Broadway producer she and I both worked with. She took no prisoners and I couldn't possibly tell you what it was. OOOHHHH....BUUUUURRRRNN!!!

As for the show, I loved everything about it including Scott's performance. She handled the part beautifully when I saw it.

Reading between the lines of the tweet (as I'm wont to do), I think the key phrases are "priceless dish" and "it was a stunner".

This leads my Sherlock-ing to deduce that Patti wasn't trashing Sherie through her own personal opinion, but with an unbelievably juicy anecdote of verifiable fact witnessed by more than just she that occurred during the run of the ill-fated show.

I love LuPone and Scott, so this doesn't alter my opinion of either of them - I just live for delicious Broadway dish as if it were my mother's milk. I love that cast recording - especially Scott's ISLAND and LuPone's INVISIBLE.

I also asked about this on the West End board in Seth's own thread titled "Come See Patti and Me". Surely someone who was in attendance will answer soon. I am literally squirming with anticipation.

And if no one answers, well, Seth has to return to his homeland sometime. And I hope all my brethren in the Tri-State area will descend upon him with their steely knives until the bitter, gorgeous truth is whittled out of him.

I think I just peed a little.
