She will be accompanied by Joseph Thalken, an award-winning composer, pianist and musical director. “Don’t Monkey with Broadway” is a concert of indelible interpretations of classic Broadway show tunes, exploring how Ms. LuPone’s life-long love affair with Broadway began, and her concern for what the Great White Way is becoming today.
