“Two legendary Broadway performers. A once-in-a-lifetime theatrical event. An Evening with Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin reunites these Tony Award®-winning virtuosos (and lifelong friends) for the first time since Evita. Much more than a concert, this is a unique musical love story told entirely through a masterful selection of the greatest songs ever written for the stage. Funny, passionate, intimate and utterly unforgettable, this is An Evening no fan of musical theatre or two of the most acclaimed performers of our time can afford to miss.”
