With Mamma Mia and Priscilla Queen of the Dessert showing off their mirrored balls eight shows a week, it would seem that Broadway is safe for Disco again. I hear you music theater purists out there scoffing, “Sondheim wouldn’t approve. This isn’t R & H. Patti LuPone would weep.”
Or maybe she’d sing along…
After the jump, watch this delightful video of Ms. LuPone getting jiggy with a disco beat. I think I may have to love her even more now that I’ve seen her dance moves starting at 3:20.
Patti’s not alone. Let’s not forget the grand lady of music theater herself, Ethel Merman, and her foray into the land of the hustle.
Now, put on your dancing shoes and boogie; it’s the weekend!
