Patti LuPone said, “When I performed at The Wallis last season, I found the venue to be one of the best in the country, allowing for an unparalleled intimacy between myself and the audience. They helped me arrange for an amazing high school choir to join me on stage as part of my show. I was also very impressed with the future artistic and educational plans for The Wallis. I am thrilled to be returning this season not only as a performer but as an Artistic Advisor, leading a Master Class for young singers, passing along what I know. The Wallis understands that education is one of the most important ways for the arts to thrive in our culture.”
