Two of Broadway’s greatest and most venerated stars – Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin – bring their once-in-a-lifetime musical event to the Aotea Centre, THE EDGE® for one night only.
Funny, passionate, intimate and utterly unforgettable, this is an evening that no fan of musicals should miss. Much more than a concert, An Evening with Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin is a unique love story, told entirely through a brilliant collection of the greatest songs written for the stage including masterpieces by Stephen Sondheim and Richard Rodgers.
“ . . . spellbinding . . . a celebration of the history and richness of musical theatre. And with his beautifully constructed show, they’re making a little bit of history again.” TALKIN’ BROADWAY
Together on stage for the first time since starring in the original Broadway production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Evita, for which they both received coveted Tony Awards for their performances, these two loved and acclaimed Broadway stars have appeared in a myriad of productions from stage and screen.
LuPone has guest-starred in top television series such as Will and Grace and Ugly Betty and is once again the toast of Broadway, winning the 2008 Tony Award for her portrayal of Rose in Gypsy.
Patinkin has most recently been seen on New Zealand television screens in Criminal Minds and his Emmy Award-winning role in Chicago Hope. He is also recognisable from his role as Inigo Montoya in the cult film classic The Princess Bride. The show is choreographed by Ann Reinking, who won a Best Choreography Tony Award for the Broadway revival of Chicago. The pair will be accompanied by Patinkin’s long-time pianist Paul Ford - “They may croon ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’, but Patinkin and LuPone keep the house nice and comfy. The pair radiate their warmth all the way to the theatre's back rows.”
