TGIF Tunes is a weekly feature that will highlight some of Broadway’s best music, from both currently running productions and past fan favorites. Join us every Friday for new playlists that are centered around a variety of unique themes to fit the season.

This Sunday, the Broadway community celebrates one of it’s biggest holidays: Patti LuPone’s birthday. The Tony and Olivier award-winning diva has been gracing the Broadway stage since 1973 when she made her debut in a revival of The Three Sisters. In her nearly five decade long career, LuPone has gone on to star in some of Broadway’s most beloved musicals: Evita, Sweeney Todd, and Gypsy just to name a few.

This Friday, #TGIF Tunes goes out to the birthday queen. Here’s to Patti LuPone. Everybody rise! Rise! Rise!
