Not an unsold seat in the 2,743 seat symphony hall last night. What a show. She is amazing. First time I've ever seen her live. Great hearing a real singer who knows how to sing. Good seeing so many, many of the gay population of the Bay Area - in couples, trios, groups of four and more. Everybody looked great, and turned out to see Patti (many had seen her a number of times). The whole theater was full of guys, and maybe a quarter of the audience were women. If you get a chance when she comes to your city - go!
"In her new, critically-acclaimed concert Far Away Places, two-time Tony Award winner (Gypsy, Evita) Patti LuPone shares her penchant for wanderlust by taking us on a musical journey with thrilling renditions of songs by an eclectic list of songwriters which include Stephen Sondheim, Cole Porter, Willie Nelson, Kurt Weill, Edith Piaf, and Frederick Hollander." (per the S.F. Chronicle)
"Patti LuPone generates more raw excitement than any other performer on Broadway. She embodies decades of show business history." —Stephen Holden, The New York Times
