Patti Coming Up Roses

I was in Chicago for just 22 hours last Saturday/Sunday, to see Patti LuPone starring in the role she couldn't be more perfect for... Mama Rose in GYPSY. The Ravinia Festival production, directed by the hugely talented (and nicest guy ever) Lonny Price, was not just a concert reading, but a full-blown production that rehearsed for only 2 weeks before playing for a mere 3 nights. It was magical...
The reviews were all glowing to the point of blindness...

While in Chicago, I was also able to spend time with my In-laws and neices and kitty cats, and that was such fun...

  1. I was at Ravinia on Saturday night... 2nd row center seat! She was magnificent. The night was glorious. What a generous performance Patti gave us all. I'll never forget Gypsy at Ravinia the summer of 2006.
