NEWARK — Two-time Tony Award winner Patti LuPone headlines the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra’s 2012–13 NJSO POPS season finale in Newark and New Brunswick, June 1–2. The legendary diva, who last appeared with the NJSO in 2009, will perform songs from her latest album, “Far Away Places,” backed for the first time by full orchestra. The star of Broadway’s Gypsy will also sing signature songs from her illustrious career on stage and screen. Rob Fisher conducts.
“Nowadays Ms. LuPone generates more raw excitement than any other performer on the Broadway and cabaret axis,” writes The New York Times, citing the singer’s place among “international chanteuses [who] conquered show business with forceful, outsize personalities while playing by their own musical rules.”
Performances take place at 8 p.m. on Saturday, June 1, at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) in Newark and Sunday, June 2, at 3 p.m. at the State Theatre in New Brunswick. The June 2 performance is presented in collaboration with the State Theatre.
