Patti LuPone: A Life in Notes

Conceived and directed by Scott Wittman

Music direction and arrangements by Joseph Thalken

Written by Jeffrey Richman

Music has the power to crystallize a moment in time and evoke eras. In her new concert,

Patti LuPone: A Life in Notes, the three-time Tony Award winner performs an array of songs that do just that—songs that are touchstones and reflections on her life growing up in America—from a young girl during the burgeoning rock and roll scene of the fifties to coming of age in the politically and socially turbulent sixties, to eventually achieving success with both career and family.
