Patti LuPone to tour Australia

by | Mar 24, 2024





Three-time Tony Award winner Patti LuPone will bring her new concert A LIFE IN NOTES to Australia this winter, directly from Carnegie Hall.


LuPone will headline the Adelaide Cabaret Festival before undertaking a national tour stopping in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.


Music has the power to crystallise a moment in time and evoke eras, in her new concert PATTI LUPONE: A LIFE IN NOTES, the Broadway, film and television superstar will perform an array of songs which do just that, songs that are touchstones and reflections on her life growing up in America – as a young girl during the burgeoning rock and roll scene of the fifties, to coming of age in the politically and socially turbulent sixties, to eventually achieving success with both career and family.


The entirely new concert is conceived and directed by Scott Wittman, with music supervision and direction by Joseph Thalken, written by Jeffrey Richman, with string instrumentalist Brad Phillips.


LuPone has one of the most recognisable names and one of the most celebrated voices in theatre history. Her credits include Sweeney Todd, Anything Goes, and the original London productions of Les Miserables and Sunset Boulevard and her Tony Award winning work in Evita, Gypsy and Marianne Elliot’s new production of Company. On screen she has starred in Life Goes On, Frasier, 30 Rock, Penny Dreadful, Pose, Hollywood, American Horror Story and the upcoming Marvel series Agatha: Darkhold Diaries.


A LIFE IN NOTES marks LuPone’s third concert tour in Australia and follows her triumphant debut here in 1981 as Eva Peron in Evita.


I love Australia and the many friends I’ve made since 1981.  I’m so looking forward to coming back. I hope audiences will enjoy my show A Life in Notes, a musical memoir of my life growing up in America,” LuPone said.


PATTI LUPONE: A LIFE IN NOTES is presented in Australia by leading live entertainment producer Michael Cassel Group.


There are bucket-list artists who I have dreamed of working with, and Patti LuPone has definitely been one of them. She is one of the most extraordinary performers in the world and it is an honour to bring her to Australia and share that power that she has become so famous for with audiences here,” Michael Cassel, CEO and Producer of Michael Cassel Group said.


The tour will begin in Adelaide on Wednesday, 19 June as part of the Adelaide Cabaret Festival with performances in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane to follow.


“Patti LuPone is an icon, a titan of the industry. And the voice, my friends, the voice! Immediately identifiable, totally unmistakable, iconically her – an artistic calling card of spectacular weight and beauty. We are beyond thrilled that Patti is starting her tour at Adelaide Cabaret Festival. This is an extraordinary opportunity for Adelaide, and Australia, to see a living legend at the top of her game … right here, on your doorstep,” Adelaide Cabaret Festival Artistic Director, Virginia Gay, said.
