The New York Philharmonic's annual Spring Gala will feature Tony, Grammy, and Olivier Award-winning singer and actress Patti LuPone performing songs from some of her award-winning, landmark Broadway performances. The concert, Thursday, May 16, 2019, at 7:30 p.m., will mark her first return to the New York Philharmonic after eight years. It will be conducted by Patrick Vaccariello, directed by Scott Wittman, and feature Michael McElroy and the Broadway Inspirational Voices as well as comedian / actress / singer Bridget Everett.
Patti LuPone will perform songs from her Tony Award-winning roles in Gypsy and Evita, as well as her other favorite roles from such shows as Sweeney Todd, Company, Anything Goes, War Paint, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, and Candide.
Patti LuPone made her New York Philharmonic debut in May 2000 as Mrs. Lovett in the Philharmonic's production of Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler's Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. She has since appeared with the Orchestra 10 times, including in Bernstein's Candide (2004), Sondheim: The Birthday Concert (2010), and Sondheim's Company (2011).
