An enchanted ‘Evening’ with LuPone, Patinkin
“An Evening with Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin’’ is constructed, very loosely, as a love story, borne along by selections from the great American songbook. The show is largely free of narration. Structurally, “Evening’’ somewhat resembles “Ten Cents a Dance,’’ John Doyle’s splendid evocation of a long and complicated relationship through the songs of Rodgers & Hart, which was performed at Williamstown Theatre Festival in August. One big difference: “Ten Cents a Dance’’ featured six performers, while “Evening’’ has the only two it needs.
