TOUR DE FORCE: The original Broadway cast album of “Evita” peaked at No. 105 on The Billboard 200 in 1980. That same year, while starring in the title role, Patti LuPone would leave the Prince Edward Theatre on Saturday nights and head over to a nightclub on 11th Avenue called Les Mouches, where for 27 weeks she performed a midnight cabaret concert. Now, 28 years later, “Patti LuPone at Les Mouches” (Ghostlight/Sh-K-Boom) debuts at No. 25 on Top Heatseekers. LuPone is eligible for this tally because she has never charted under her own name before, despite numerous chart appearances on cast albums like “Sunset Boulevard,” the 2005 revival of “Sweeney Todd” and the current revival of “Gypsy.”

  1. I was fortunate enough to have worked at Les Mouches as one of the first female club DJ’s during Ms. Lupone’s twenty seven week engagement there.
    Ms. Lupone brought the house down every Saturday night!
    One could hear the cheers from the cabaret theater section of the nightclub..well into the disco where I was cranking the music for hundreds!
    Patti Lupone..legendary!
