CANDIDE: Wonderful Patti LuPone and Leonard Bernstein!
31 March 2005 | by (Miami, FL) – See all my reviews

Just breathtakingly enjoyable live performance of the now deliciously legendary Leonard Bernstein music.

Patti, if I may call her that because she has become so timelessly endearing, is impeccably wonderful in this comic masterpiece.

Her comic timing is flawless and brings a chuckle that becomes a guffaw at many a moment during this production.

I love satire and this is one of those jewels that have so much undercurrents of social commentary that one viewing or hearing does not reveal everything to the mind's eye or heart's ear.

Fun, fun, fun!
