Here's what I said about Patti and Mandy when they appeared at the Ahmanson in June, 2009:...in their simplistically staged concert at the Ahmanson Theatre, LuPone and Patinkin do more with one song than most singers merely dream of. She with "In Buddy's Eyes", he with "The God-Why-Don't-You-Love-Me Blues"; she with "April in Paris", he with "April in Fairbanks"; she with "Getting Married Today", he with "Franklin Shepard Inc". The list goes on and on. Rodgers and Hammerstein and Sondheim have never sounded better, and the two even have some fun along the way. A dance here, some choreography on chairs there...and even some mime.
A bare theatre stage, some lights, a few chairs as props, musicians and two brilliant singing actors relating the ins and outs of love through the great Broadway music of the past.
This is a great evening of theatre that all performers should see - and everyone else as well, for the pure entertainment and CLASS of it.
5 out of 5 stars
