Broadway icon and author of the New York Times best-selling autobiography, Patti LuPone: A Memoir, Patti LuPone visited IC on Monday, December 10, for an exclusive Q&A at Hoerner Theatre.
Moderated by Joel Gelpe, accompanist and musical director in the theatre arts department, Ms. LuPone opened up about her experience in show business and took questions from an audience full of IC students and faculty.
“The ultimate goal of a long run is to find absolute stillness in the part,” exclaimed LuPone when discussing how she keeps a role fresh and consistent when doing six to twelve-month long runs. “We are essentially storytellers and it’s our responsibility to tell it from the beginning.”
