Patti LuPone at Les Mouches to Be Released on Ghostlight

The year was 1980, and Patti LuPone was starring as “Evita” on Broadway. She was en route to winning the Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical, and cementing her status as a Broadway star. But there was another Patti LuPone performance taking place — one that only a comparative handful of people were aware of: Every Saturday night at midnight, for 27 weeks, after performing one of the most demanding roles ever, she made her way to Les Mouches – a legendary nightclub in New York City, to perform a solo concert…This was a one-woman tour de force that — until now — only the lucky few who were on hand knew about…

We’re so happy to announce that all that will change on November 11th, when we’re releasing “Patti LuPone at Les Mouches,” a digitally-restored concert recording of LuPone’s 1980 solo show. Ghostlight President Kurt Deutsch, along with longtime producing partner Joel Moss and co-producers Ben Rimalower and David Lewis, have culled performances from the venue’s original board mixes, and assembled a recording that captures the raw energy and excitement of a once in a lifetime concert event, and a moment in time. Everybody who was anybody was there, from Andy Warhol to Jodie Foster to Stephen Sondheim. It was literally the hottest ticket in town. This music has never been released before, in any format.

LuPone’s concerts at Les Mouches often featured unexpected song choices, from Patti Smith/Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Because The Night’ to Bob Dylan’s ‘Mr. Tambourine Man.’ LuPone mixed it up in a spirited assortment of familiar Broadway tunes, songs from ‘Evita’, and more. In addition to the abovementioned tracks, “Patti LuPone at Les Mouches” will include ‘Rainbow High’, ‘Don’t Cry For Me Argentina’, ‘Come Rain Or Come Shine’, ‘Not While I’m Around’, ‘Meadowlark’ and more.

We’ll be announcing the full track list will be in the weeks ahead, but for now, send us an email at lesmouches@sh-k-boom.com if you’d like to be alerted when the CD is available for pre-order.
