LuPone’s Tantrum Is Now A Dance Song!


A couple of years ago, I was dancing in a bar to something fierce that turned out to be Faye Dunaway‘s raging phone messages to a poor TV producer set to a dance beat. It was hair-raising and captivating at the same time! So when Patti LuPone‘s “Who do you think you are?” tirade to a photo-flashing audience member in the middle of Gypsy hit YouTube the other day, I wondered how long it would before we could boogie down to THAT bit of fourth-wall-breaking.

Well, the wait is over! Someone quite clever has mixed LuPone’s screeching with an electro beat, some rapping, and even marvy titles on the screen to make it a multimedia cultural experience. Enjoy–but don’t take pictures.
