The curtain goes down on Company for a final time on July 31st

Company survived pandemic closures and received 9 Tony nominations, but the lights will dim permanently on the Broadway musical at the end of next month.

They did not say why the show starring Patti LuPone is closing, but I have my theory. Yesterday, Broadway announced that masks will be optional come July 1st. And as we know, LuPone is a strong advocate for keeping them on. So I wonder if LuPone said she was done when the masks were done? And without her tickets sales would plummet.

When it comes to the mask mandate, I agree with her on this as the audience is packed in like sardines in a closed, confined room for 3 hours. You know, COVID-19 is going to start spreading faster than the news.


You better wear a mask properly around Patti LuPone

If you are going to see a Broadway show with Patti LuPone starring in it, then you should know you need to follow all the rules. If you don’t, then be prepared to feel her wrath.

Well, there was a woman who thought she could wear her mask below her nose in the front row and not get lectured by the Tony winner. Boy, was she wrong.

After a performance of Company, the cast of the show talked to the audience about the musical. LuPone saw the woman with her mask half on, and she had to say something to the woman in her unique way.

“Put your mask over your nose! That’s why you’re in the theater. That is the rule. If you don’t want to follow the rule, get the fuck out,” LuPone yelled. “Who do you think you are? If you do not respect the people that are sitting around you.”

The COVidiot responded by telling her, “I pay your salary.” I don’t feel bad for the maskhole for what happens next.

“You pay my salary? Bullshit. Chris Harper pays my salary,” LuPone explained. “Who do you think you are?” This time the woman said, “A patron.”

The video cuts off, but I am assuming that LuPone explained to her that the Broadway community has worked hard to safeguard all the shows so that they can go on. So by not wearing a mask properly, it puts all of their hard work at risk and the Great White Way will go dark again. Therefore, the actress is right. You don’t come into her house and not follow the rules. The theater is the star’s house, and the woman disobeyed the rules. I hope Broadway bans her from all future performances of all shows.

The actors and crew are doing everything in their power to keep the curtain up; the patrons have to do the same.

And seriously, how can anyone in this day and age think they can win against LuPone. I might be from The Bronx, and my innate toughness is no match for her. That is why she is so high flying adored!

Oh, and LuPone has a message for all the other people who think they pay her salary. To see what it is, then click here!


Patti LuPone hit in the head by roses

It has not been a good month for Patti LuPone. First, she was hit by COVID-19. Then she was hit on the head by roses while taking a bow during a curtain call after a performance of Company.

Was she upset by it? She told Page Six, “Why did the video go viral unless it was to give people a good laugh and a release from the insanity of the world right now, which I’m all for.”

However, she has a message for others who would like to do the same, “But I think we need to school people who want to throw roses to the stage to aim for the feet, not the head. And take the thorns off!”

And the person who threw the roses got lucky. Lucky, the gloves didn’t come off because I would never want to be on LuPone’s bad side, ask Madonna and Glenn Close.


COVID-19 came for Patti LuPone, and now I feel sorry for it

Patti LuPone has been able to avoid COVID-19 for all of this time. However, it finally got close, Glenn Close, enough to her.

The Broadway legend announced it yesterday, “Hi Dolls. I showed up for Saturday’s matinee, tested positive for Covid with 3 tests. Unfortunately, I’ll be out of the show for 10 days. I’m so sorry.”

Hopefully, she will be OK soon and back on stage with The Company at the end of her quarantine. But then again, I actually pity coronavirus because I think they met their match.


Patti LuPone wants you to know she has rotavirus and not COVID-19
December 27th, 2021 under Patti LuPone. [ Comments: none ]

A little over a week ago, there was a story in The New York Post that a performance of Company was abruptly cancelled when a cast member threw up on another cast member backstage. The article made it clear it was because said cast member had food poisoning.

Today, we found out that that cast member is Patti LuPone. That is because she posted an update on her condition to clear up the rumors being said about her.

Hi Dolls. I don’t normally do this but since there are a few little shits out there writing false things about Company, here’s the truth: I missed 2 shows with a rotavirus. My toilet can confirm this. Two other actors contracted the same rotavirus. Poor Claybourne [Elder] and his puke-stained flight attendant uniform can confirm, too.

While we’ve had a couple cases of Covid in the company, we’ve had exemplary understudies covering those roles, so the show was able to go on. You should all know that the Jacobs and the production of Company is one of the best tested on Broadway. We’re all getting PCR probed every night.

We currently cannot field a crew of stagehands to run the show safely. Our backstage crew is among the best I have ever worked with and I hope they return to us soon. These people are putting their health at just as much risk as we are onstage, and we ask that you please be patient while everyone gets better, so we can continue our run of Company.

I hope she is better soon because she should be making people feel like shit, and she shouldn’t feel like sh!t because of something that is making her sh!t.
