Patti Lupone - Patti Lupone And Mandy Patinkin Reunite After 30 Years

Patti Lupone and her former 'Evita' co-star Mandy Patinkin have reunited on Broadway for the first time in 30 years. The duo star in 'An Evening with Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin', touted as a "musical love story" that features songs by the likes of Stephen Sondheim, Rodgers & Hammerstein and others, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The production officially opened at the Barrymore Theatre in New York on Monday (November 21, 2011) and runs until January 13, after which the legendary pair will perform throughout the United States. Speaking to the New York Times about the new show, Patinkin said, "We sing a song in the show, called Old Friends, and Patti always says, 'Remember, we're not old!...I have to say, when I look at this lady, it's a time machine. I look in her eyes, and I am 30 years younger. It is one the great drugs of all time". The duo first appeared in a Broadway show together in 1979, starring in Andrew Lloyd Webber's hit musical Evita, with LuPone playing the Argentinian political icon Eva Peron. In 2008, she starred as Madame Rose in the 2008 Broadway revival of Gypsy and more recently, appeared opposite Neil Patrick Harris and Stephen Colbert in a production of 'Company' in New York.
Writing for the Hollywood Reporter, David Rooney welcomed the return of LuPone and Patinkin, saying, "The frisson of their history with the material and its role in the genesis of their friendship, together with both singers' enduring vocal command, provides the show's most substantial jolt".
