Patti LuPone Is Not A Fan, Cirque Du Soleil

| Filed under: Broadway Babies


That's something you'll have to come to terms with. We suggest some herbal tea and years of therapy.

The legendary Broadway performer Patti LuPone has some beef with the Great White Way, particularly the uprising of "loud" productions in midtown. She reveals in a new interview that she is very "angry" over the ticket prices in NYC these days and much like everywhere else, she blames greed from the producers. But there seems to be a bit more to it than that. She goes on to say:

“Cirque du Soleil – it’s the big, bad brother now. My main complaint is that the productions are just too loud. You can’t have an intimate experience in the theater anymore. And that’s what it’s about. It’s really about the unification of an audience, having a collective audience, individually, and listening. And we’re not allowed to listen any more because the sound level is too loud. And, I don’t know where the voice is coming from. It’s not coming from the stage any more. My eyes are looking at the stage, and my ears are searching for the sound that the mouth is producing. So, immediately I’m disenfranchised from my experience."

Wow. We're not sure what to say. We love us some Cirque action, but we love us some Patti LuPone just as much. Guess there's only one thing to say …

Shut up, Patti LuPone! Shut your brassy, magnificent trap!

No, wait, that's not it. That's a line from Will & Grace. Umm…

Oh yeah! Patti, be the change you want to see on Broadway! Come back to the lights! Come hear the music play! Life is Cabaret, old chum! Come fix good old Broadway!!!

    not a big fan of her but she is right….cirque is now all about the bottom line, sponsor adverts and too many shows…there is nothing special it has been wal-marted…sad

    If its too loud, you are too old. This is a different kind of theater than what she is used to. Its more than just a script to read from or a song to sing. Its a form of art, I have always been impressed with Cirque du Soleil.
