- Patti LuPone
The Woodstock Playhouse kicks off its 2014 season with musical theater superstar Patti LuPone, who will perform a gala concert on May 3. Known for her star turns in the box office powerhouses "Evita, "Gypsy" and "Sweeney Todd," Lupone has also appeared one "Glee," and most recently on Broadway in "Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown." The show is hosted by Sirius XM radio star Seth Rudetsky, named "The Mayor of Broadway" by the New York Times. Rudetsky plays the piano and probes LuPone with witty and revealing questions, seamlessly blending with LuPone's vocal performance and behind-the-scenes stories. The show includes numbers from Evita, Gypsy, Sunset Boulevard, and more theatrical productions where LuPone has lit up the stage. The New Season of Theatre at the Woodstock Playhouse brings back Broadway with these two charismatic, talented stars. Saturday May 3, at 7:30pm in Woodstock. (845) 679-6900; Woodstockplayhouse.org.
