La Cieca’s fans worldwide will be happy to note that she doesn’t think scandals are limited to only New York and Bayreuth. In fact, wherever Patti LuPone goes, scandale follows. Right now, La LuPone is in Chicago, and, yes, the Hogtown natives are restless.
But, this time at least, the diva’s not the cause of the scandale, more like an innocent bystander. And, in fact, her upcoming performance of Annie Get Your Gun is being used as a sort of olive branch for the shortchanged patrons of the Ravinia Festival. [Chicago Tribune]
