Accompanied by piano and string quartet, LuPone never sounded better, singing a thrillingly intimate evening of songs depicting the many different kinds of love. Her show mixed Broadway favorites by Rodgers & Hammerstein and Stephen Sondheim with pop songs by Lennon & McCartney, Judy Collins and Randy Newman, among others. For a year, LuPone had been performing MATTERS OF THE HEART to standing ovations around the world, from the Donmar Warehouse in London to the Opera House in Sydney, and we were delighted to bring this critically-acclaimed evening to New York.
