EXCLUSIVE Photo Coverage: Signature Theatre Honors Patti LuPone at the Annual Stephen Sondheim Awards Gala!
LuPone, a two-time Tony Award®-winner, has appeared in numerous Sondheim works, including Sunday in the Park with George, Sweeney Todd, and most recently in Gypsy in 2008, where she garnered a Tony Award®, Drama Desk Award, Outer Critics Circle Award, and Drama League Award for her portrayal of Rose. She returns to the Broadway stage this November in An Evening with Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin.
Stephen Sondheim stated, "There are few performers who can play both Mrs. Lovett and Fosca, Evita and Reno Sweeney, Nancy in Oliver! and Cora Hoover Hooper in Anyone Can Whistle, and still create roles for David Mamet. In fact, there's only one. Versatility of such a high caliber is rare indeed, and therefore it couldn't be more appropriate that the recipient of this year's Signature Theatre Sondheim Award is going to the best tuba player on Broadway: Patti LuPone."
Patti LuPone's most recent stage credits include creating the role of Lucia in the musical Women on the Verge of A Nervous Breakdown (Tony Award® nomination) and appearing as Joanne in the New York Philharmonic's concert production of Stephen Sondheim's Company. In May 2011, Miss LuPone made her debut with the New York City Ballet in their production of Weill and Brecht's The Seven Deadly Sins. She swept the 2008 theatre awards winning the Tony®, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Actress in a Musical and the Drama League Award for Distinguished Performance for her performance in the classic Jule Styne/Stephen Sondheim/Arthur Laurents musical Gypsy.
