Patti LuPone is an American actress and singer.



Born in Newport, New York, LuPone was one of the first graduates of Juilliard's Drama Division and a member of The Acting Company from 1972 to 1976. Whilst best known for her musical theatre work (earning the first of several Tony nominations for The Robber Bridegroom), LuPone also appeared in a number of straight plays, often working with David Mamet on such works as The Woods and The Old Neighbourhood and other works such as Master Class. She received her first Tony victory for playing the lead role in Evita.

As well as stage work, LuPone also appeared on a number of television shows, earning Emmy nominations for appearances on The Solo Spinner and Frasier (playing Frasier's formidable Aunt Zora) and having guest roles on Oz and Will & Grace amongst others. She also appeared in the films Driving Miss Daisy and State and Main.


A renowned icon of musical theatre stage, LuPone began originating roles in small productions such as The Robber Bridegroom and The Baker's Wife before gaining recognition with her titular turn in Evita and roles as Nancy and Fantine in Oliver! and Les Misérables respectively.

LuPone later went on to originate roles in such hit shows as Sunset Boulevard as well as starring in a number of notable revivals such as Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (where she played Mrs. Lovett) and Gypsy, in which she played Mama Rose Lee. LuPone also appeared in a number of concerts including Patti LuPone: Matters of the Heart and sang in television programmes ranging from Will & Grace to 30 Rock.
