Watch “Company” Star Patti Lupone Curse Out A Mask-Abuser at After Show Talk Back


Tony nominee Patti Lupone gets my vote for this eviscerating of a fan at the after show talk back for “Company.”

Patti, who’s had COVID at least once (maybe twice) does not suffer fools gladly. When she saw a member of the audience with their mask below their nose, she hit the ceiling, and rightly so.

The audience member tries to fight back, but Patti is the Muhammad Ali of Broadway. She’s also a New Jersey girl who loves Bruce Springsteen. You’re not going to win.
