In this all-new edition of the Emmy-nominated YoungArts Masterclass, iconic actress Patti LuPone – star of such memorable stage hits as Evita, Gypsy and many more – Mentors four young student actors, selected from the YoungArts national performing-arts program and invited to attend a special onstage workshop on the Belasco Theatre stage on Broadway. Awed by their surroundings, but brimming with energy and excitement, they limber up their voices on the venerable stage before meeting LuPone, who greets each actor warmly before getting down to the business of working with each singer and critiquing his or her performance. Later, the group will relax together during lunch at Joe Allen’s, a famous theater-district restaurant frequented by actors and decorated with Broadway posters.
