    With nearly 100 photographs, including an 8-page four-color insert, and illuminating details about the life of a working actor, from inspired costars and demanding directors to her distinct perspective on how she developed and honed her Tony Award–winning performances, Patti LuPone: A Memoir is as inspirational as it is entertaining. And though the title might say “a memoir,” this is ultimately a love letter to the theatre by a unique American artist.

    Scott says: "Excellent"
    "My Favorite Audiobook Experience Ever"
    Overall

    Just a great listening experience. I heard Patti when she appeared on KQED radio's "Forum" program in San Francisco. Bought the audiobook that day. I've only seen her once, in "Evita" at the Broadway Theater. Now I wish I'd seen her in everything she writes about.

    Her audiobook should be the standard for anybody in the performing arts who plans to write a book and produce an audiobook. Great stories, honest feelings, hilarious profanity here and there, with gigantic affection for theater and for her fellow actors. She's tough on herself frequently, revealing the toll her roles took, but in those stories there is wisdom for others. Her account of vocal problems and their solution should be required reading for young performers.

    By the way, back in the 90s, when her website was new, I visited her "Ask Patti" page on a Sunday morning. I asked her a technical question about the great sound quality in the theater when I saw "Evita." Patti replied and answered the question in a only couple of hours. You don't forget kindness like that.
