Patti Lupone’s Upcoming 54 Below Concert to Be Live-Streamed

Patti Lupone’s Upcoming 54 Below Concert to Be Live-Streamed

What a way to start the new year: three-time Tony winner Patti LuPone will live-stream her sold-out 54 Below concert this January!

The concert will be part of the "Live from 54 Below" series which features live captures from Broadway's favorite concert space. The shows participating are presented exclusively at the time of performance and are typically not available on demand afterward.

LuPone, who was recently on Broadway as Joanne in the Tony-winning revival of Company, will be performing "Songs From A Hat" - a concert filled with songs old and new that will be chosen by a draw from a hat each night.

Here's all you need to know on how to stream the concert live from home:

 


 

The concert series will run December 20th - January 8th at 54 Below, with each show completely unscripted and unplanned. Patti will draw the songs for the evening show earlier that day to determine the setlist for the concert.

The January 1st show, set for 8PM EST, will be streamed live globally. Tickets to the live show are now on sale, and range between $225-$150. The streamed performance will offer tickets for $40, not including a 10% handling fee from 54 Below. Tickets to the live stream can be purchased here.

Musical Direction for the concert is by Joseph Thalken who worked with LuPone multiple times over the years.

 


 

LuPone, a Tony winner for her performances in Evita, Gypsy and Company, recently made headlines when she gave up her Actors Equity card. Her tweeter announcement read: "Quite a week on Broadway, seeing my name being bandied about. Gave up my Equity card; no longer part of that circus. Figure it out".

LuPone referenced a recent incident at Broadway's Hadestown when a cast member called out an audience member mid-show for filming the production when she was using a captioning device due to hearing loss. LuPone has called out audience members from the stage multiple times in her career, including a performance of Gypsy in 2008 when flash photography was used.
