Since the nice people at Signature Theater have put me in a Sunset Blvd place I had to post the clip above. It’s Patti LuPone singing the big song from Sunset Blvd when she was doing the first workshop of the show at Lord Lloyd Webber’s private theater on his estate at Sydmonton. Meryl Streep is in the audience checking out the show. Watch Patti fight for her theatrical life in a ridiculously high key. And also appreciate the irony of watching the first public performance of “As If We Never Said Goodbye” in the context of the show by the first performer who was famously fired from the production.
