Patti Lupone & Andrew Lloyd Webber ">
Patti Lupone and Andrew Lloyd Webber end two-decade feud.

Patti Lupone and Andrew Lloyd Webber have ended one of Broadway’s longest running and most enjoyed feuds.

Eyebrows were raised when it was announced Lupone would perform in a tribute to Lloyd Webber and Leonard Bernstein at this years Grammy Awards.

Having agreed to perform “Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina” the necessary re-scoring for the televised awards ceremony required the dueling divas to work together.

Meeting Lloyd Webber in New York for rehearsal, Lupone picked up the microphone and announced to the room full of people (who had nervously been wondering how it would play out) “This is détente, ladies and gentlemen” followed by a hug with the celebrated composer.

The two famously fell out over his decision to fire her from the Broadway production of Sunset Boulevard 24 years prior and replace her with Glenn Close, who subsequently won the Tony Award.

Lupone sued and walked away with a million dollars which she used to install a luxurious swimming pool in her Connecticut home.

In 1996 she told The New York Times “On blissfully sunny days in the woods, we toast Andrew Lloyd Webber by the Andrew Lloyd Webber Memorial Pool.”

Lupone’s performance at the Grammy’s has been widely acclaimed and become a hit on youtube.

The two-time Grammy and two-time Tony award winner will soon cross the Atlantic to star in Marion Elliot’s West End production of Stephen Sondheim’s Company.

Company runs from 26 September 2018 until 29 December2018 at the Gielgud Theatre.

Patti Lupone heads to London for Company

Broadway star Patti Lupone has signed on for the London production of Company.

The two-time Tony, Grammy & Olivier Award winning grand dame of Broadway will make her first West End appearance in 25 years when she joins Marianne Elliott’s upcoming production of Company next year.

Lupone will play the role of ‘Joanne’ in her first full scale production of Sondheim’s Tony Award winning musical. She has previously appeared in concert productions of Company and her rendition of ‘Ladies Who Lunch’ is a youtube sensation.

Patti LuPone said: ‘I saw War Horse in New York and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time in London. I came out of both productions blown away by Ms Elliott’s vision. So naturally I am thrilled beyond words that she wants me to be a part of Company.

“I thought I’d sworn off musicals, but working with Marianne was an opportunity I couldn’t resist.”

Lupone is currently starring with Christine Ebersole in the soon to close Broadway production of War Paint.

 

British actress Rosalie Craig will play the lead role of “Bobby” re-imagined for the first time as a woman.

Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s musical about life, love and marriage is directed by Marianne Elliott (War Horse, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) with set and costume by Bunny Christie.

The musical centres on Bobbi’s 35th birthday party, where surrounded by all her friends, they wonder why she can’t find the right man, settle down and get married.
