LuPone's Last Laugh

Years ago, not long after she'd been pushed out of the Broadway run of Webber's Sunset Blvd., I saw Patti LuPone sing a benefit show, and she made a gracious, self-deprecating reference to that debacle before singing "Don't Cry for Me, Argentina." So I'm not surprised at this report on how she's embracing and making of light of the Gypsy photo controversy:
A friend of mine just went on a cruise that Patti Lupone headlined in the Caribbean, just after Gypsy's closing...as a closer, she sings "...just the way you look tonight"...with a disposable camera...and takes pictures of the crowd the whole time.
