Patti LuPone

She was trying out for a drama school, and read some
John Housman, school's director, came to the front of the stage and said,
I don't think that that's what Shakespeare had in mind.

She was performing at Grossinger's.
A woman in the audience got up and shook her arms for attention.
Patti stopped the show. What was wrong?
The woman said, Patti, you're singing too loud!

Distantly related to Adelina Patti, opera singer.
