When will everbody learn that she is not really as great as people think. The only reason I am glad she is around is because Forbidden Broadway is f*cking hilarious because of her.

I love America. Just because I think gay dudes should be allowed to adopt kids and we should all have hybrid cars doesn't mean I don't love America. [turns and winks directly into the camera] - Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) on 30 Rock

ChiChi, I never thought of it that way.

You're right. I'm over it. I'll pass the word to all the other Patti fans. (And the Tonys, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, and the whoever-hands-out-the-Oliviers committees.)

No need to check out any other Patti threads. I'll make sure everybody's on board.

I love her.

I love that we're still talking about it. It was over a week ago. Gypsy's closed. Patti is Marmite, we get it.
When I see the phrase "the ____ estate", I imagine a vast mansion in the country full of monocled men and high-collared women receiving letters about productions across the country and doing spit-takes at whatever they contain. -Kad

Any other ANTM fans? It reminds me of Tyra yelling at Tiffany, especially the "HOW DARE YOU?!!!" part.

Awww... Yelling at Tiffany really is a dyeing art form. And far more unsubstantiated. She was just trying to have a pleasant farewell. It's not like she was taking photos during the taping of the "Shake Ya Body (Body)" music video.

And Patti is every bit as great as I think she is. Her performance in Master Class was perfection both times I saw it and her Matters of the Heart concert at the Donmar was sublime. But if you have to try and tell "everybody" that she's not actually great, then perhaps you need to evaluate your perspective a little more objectively. You are, after all, admitting that you are the sole minority in LuPone admiration. It does sounds suspiciously like the "I'm-not-lying-everybody-else-is" defense. It might work on rich suburban cool moms with tennis bracelets, spiky hair and terra cotta skin tones after you get caught dumping a quarter bag into the brownie mix during Home Ec class in eighth grade, but it's not applicable to everything. Believe me, I've tried.

It's ok Reg. You can believe she's as good as I think she is. And I'll even let you borrow my Maybelline Kissing Potion after third period.

The best part about all of this is that Patti probably doesn't care and hasn't given it a second thought.
