The legendary star of musicals 'Evita', 'Sweeney Todd' and 'War Paint' plays to the cheap seats with a loud assessment of the president.
Patti LuPone has been heard and understood.
The Broadway legend has been venerated for her wall-rattling belt and criticized for her often-unintelligible diction. But there was no mistaking what she said on the Tony Awards red carpet Sunday, when didn't hold back about her feelings for President Trump.
The Tony-winning star of "Sweeney Todd" and "Evita," who is currently appearing in "War Paint," was being interviewed by a TV reporter for Variety. He asked, "Why should President Trump come see your show?"
"Well, I hope he doesn't, because I won't perform if he does," she said.
"Really," the reporter replied.
"Really," she said, stabbing the air with her chin emphatically.
"Why's that?" the reporter asked.
"Because I hate the motherf***er, how's that?" she said, with two chin stabs.
Twitter approved of this.
Other Tony nominees expressed quieter disapproval. The Variety reporter also queried Denée Benton, nominated for "Natasha, Pierre and the Comet of 1812" (an adaptation of "War & Peace") why Trump should see her show. "Because maybe it would give him a little bit of a soul," she replied.
In a June 7 interviewed with the "Hollywood Reporter," LuPone was a bit more muted in her criticism of Trump: "I would not perform and they know that. I cannot stand him. Melania, I've got a little bit more respect for. And Melania, if you can hear me, divorce his ass!"
Broadway has traditionally been a demilitarized zone, but the Trump presidency has changed that. Last November, when Vice President Mike Pence was spotted in the audience of "Hamilton," the cast delivered a message about diversity directly to him at the end of the show.
Pence later said he wasn't offended. Trump, true to form, tweeted that his vice president had been "harassed" and demanded an apology.
So far, the president has not ventured a response to LuPone.
How much more violence against republicans do these creeps want?
Well, ain’t that special, libtards have gone full retard ...
Who gives a happy rats azz?
The orange man lives inside their heads, rent free ... Hillaryous ...
She’s quite full of herself.... and NUTS.

Too bad. She was amazing in Sweeney Todd. Better than the movie although it was great too.
My, how unique, original and courageous of her.
Never mind Trump,is there anyone who really wants to see “’War Paint”?
She really loves her hate, doesn’t she?
Fock NYC! I gave them everything after 9/11. Next time I won’t care very much!
Well isnt it obvious..they want us ALL DEAD..Id love to see that prick last ONE DAY in Venezuela, just one day..Id pay her air fare..she wouldn’t last..she wouldn’t want to leave her millions behind..but hey according to the media BOTH SIDES are responsible for what is going on..oh really..I dont remember a Conservative actor(or actress) saying that they bleep Barack Obama..they would have never worked this town ever again if they had
Maybe her Stand-in is better! I’d bet that.
Who cares what she thinks. She’s has more visits to the STD clinic than the whores on Harry Hines in Dallas.
Wall-rattling belch? Brap!
So I take it this Lupone person is some kind of entertainer.
Yes, I have heard of her. But so far I have made it through life without experiencing her work, and I figure it will be pretty easy to get to the end the same way. What have I missed?
Yup, she grabbed someone’s cell phone from the audience at one of her shows a couple of years ago.
