“A relaxed, funny performance, filled with running gags that were delivered with the crack timing of a stand-up comedian.”

— Frank Scheck, The New York Post


“You don’t want to miss it when Patti LuPone throws a party, which is essentially what she did with her concert Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda, less a consideration of what LuPone coulda been than a celebration of the singular stage force she is.  Behold as she cocks her hop, extends a hand yearningly toward the audience and sings from her heels.  Many try, but few have the knockout punch of LuPone.  A Sondheim sequence found LuPone in supple, sublime form.  She illuminated the witty lyrics of I Never Do Anything Twice, with clever gestures and intelligent phrasing. , delivered a poignant Anyone Can Whistle and added a brisk, ferocious and memorable Ladies Who Lunch.”

— Nelson Pressley, The Washington Post
