And it's glamorous!
Two-time Tony Award winner and Broadway baby extraordinaire Patti LuPone is giving fans a behind-the-scenes look at her life off stage in a new documentary series (directed by her own son) called Entrances, Exits, and Everything in Between.
In the first ep of the series (above), Patti travels to Europe, where she performs in her cabaret act The Gypsy in My Soul on a cruise ship - and thankfully for all her fans (including US), her whole family comes along for the fun and wild ride!
