Patti LuPone who has never been one for mincing words and calling out theatergoers who fail to follow proper theater etiquette, did it again on Tuesday when she exchanged blue words with an anti-mask attendee during a production of “Company” on Broadway.
The reading extraordinaire occurred after the show, when LuPone — appeared with the rest of her cast in a post-show Q&A hosted and filmed by the American Theater Wing no less.
During the Q&A, LaDiva rightfully called out the audience member who wasn’t wearing a mask properly. Currently, the Broadway League’s COVID safety protocols requires all audience members to wear a mask inside theaters.
“Put your mask on over your nose, that is the rule,” LuPone says in a viral Twitter video. “That’s why you are in the theater, that is the rule. If you don’t want to follow the rule, get the fuck out!” I’m serious. Who do you think you are, if you do not respect the people that are sitting around you?” After a woman in the audience told LuPone “I pay your salary,” LuPone responded by telling her “You pay my salary? Bullshit. Chris Harper pays my salary,” referring to the producer of “Company.” “Who do you think you are? Just put your mask over your nose.”
The woman in the audience had the nerve to talk back to our Broadway Legend Supreme?
If you can’t make it to New York City to see the new “gender bending” production of COMPANY starring La Diva’ herself Patti LuPone fear not. You can get a sip of Patti’s potently potable rendition below.
Enjoy, have a double, and please wear a hat.
FOX News has it’s panties all in a twist and is calling Broadway legend and diva Patti LuPone “homophobic” over a tweet she made against the self-proclaimed “straight” Senator and Donald Trump’s butt-boy Lindsey Graham.
Ms. Graham who has been defending Donald Trump in recent days amid the ongoing controversy over his racist comments, as well as the “Send her back” chants at one of his rallies on Wednesday night.
“Lindsey Graham you are a disgrace,” Ms. LuPone tweeted. “On a personal note, why don’t you just bite the bullet and come out. You might just come to your senses.”
Now we all know that Lindsey-belle is straight. After all he says so. But this tweet send the Republi-CONS and Fox News into a tailspin frenzy and stated the false accusations that the one and only Evita herself is “homophobic” .
Now remember everyone. Lindsey Graham is straight. (To the nearest dick that is.)
I guess like Patti I am a homophobe also. Who knew?
