Patti LuPone Wishes She Did More Shakespeare At School


Patti LuPone was here a few days ago for Jordan Roth’s Broadway Talks series. Leading up to the event, we solicited questions for Patti from readers of our blog and 20 readers left questions! During the Q&A session at the event, Jordan asked Patti a question submitted by 92Y Blog reader Katrina Ramsburg, who asked: “If you could go back in time, taking with you all the experience and training you have gained over the years, is there a role you would want to tackle again?  What would you bring to it that is different?” Read Patti’s response below. 

Oh geez, you know I thought about that. I’d like to do to Raina Petkoff and “Arms in the Man.”

When I was a kid I didn’t understand George Bernard Shaw at all, so I would love to play that part again. I would love to have done Cleopatra.

(long pause)

I’m trying to think of...I don’t necessarily want to go back. I’d like to play a new role, do you know what I mean? Nah, I wouldn’t want to go back really.

I’d like to, Raina Petkoff, because that was a great Shaw play and I didn’t get it. I would love to have done some Jean Anouilh; “Mademoiselle Colombe” or “The Lark”. He’s a wonderful French playwright that has bad translations and is never done in this country. Very romantic. And I wish I had done more Shakespeare at school.
