Patti LuPone: Don’t Monkey With Broadway

Currently starring on Broadway in War Paint, two-time Tony Award and Grammy Award winner Patti LuPone returns to her roots with her new double-disc live album, “Don’t Monkey With Broadway.”  Recorded in concert in her hometown of Northport, Long Island, at the John W. Engeman Theatre, Ms. LuPone takes you behind the curtain on her life-long love affair with Broadway and her concern for what the Great White Way is becoming today.

Broadway Records announced today that Patti LuPone: Dont Monkey With Broadway will be released digitally and in stores on Friday September 29, 2017. The album is currently available for pre-order at www.BroadwayRecords.com and Amazon.com.

Produced by Michael J. Moritz Jr., “Don’t Monkey With Broadway” features musical direction and arrangements by Joseph Thalken. Ms. LuPone is also joined by the Northport High School Tour Choir. This is Ms. LuPone’s third album with Broadway Records, following “Far Away Places – Live at 54 Below” and the reissued “Matters of the Heart.”
