About the show

Stage star Patti LuPone and Broadway über-geek Seth Rudetsky join forces for a one-of-a-kind evening of songs, stories, and merriment. Rescheduled from its original date of May 14. More…

For the first time in New York City, two-time Tony, Grammy and Olivier Award winner Patti LuPone will revisit some of the iconic roles of her illustrious career, and Seth Rudetsky—the wildly popular host of 'Seth’s Big Fat Broadway' on SiriusXM—will deconstruct them as only he can do. After acclaimed performances together across the U.S. and in London, this unscripted evening will include stories LuPone hasn’t talked about anywhere else and would share only at the prompting of Rudetsky. This is a one-time-only benefit for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. VIP tickets include a post-show reception with LuPone and Rudetsky.
