Atlanta Symphony Orchestra
Presents Broadway Star Patti LuPone

2011 May 24

One of the greatest Broadway performers and singers of all time, Patti LuPone, will be performing at Atlanta Symphony Hall this Friday and Saturday.

Of all the stars I’ve seen on Broadway, none stood out more than this dramatic actress with the powerful voice. I saw her play Eva Peron in “Evita,” for which she won her first Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical, and I have seen her in the Broadway production of “Sweeney Todd, which aired on PBS.

LuPone has been nominated numerous times for Best Actress in a Musical for the Tony Awards and for the Laurence Olivier Awards. She won another Tony in the same category, in 2008, for her role as Rose in “Gypsy.” Performing since she was four, LuPone has starred on Broadway numerous times, most recently in “Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown.”

LuPone is also a New York Times best-selling author for “Patti LuPone: A Memoir.”
