Hi, my name is Josh Johnston and I am the cameraman and editor for Entrances, Exits, and Everything in Between with Patti LuPone. What she and I have collaborated on is our effort to show aspiring performers and fans of the arts what it's like in the shoes of a veteran of the craft: everything from the Sunset lows to the Rainbow Highs of performing, Patti LuPone has seen and lived it all. My intention was to shoot a documentary and not reality TV, and while this is all real, nothing is ever staged or shot twice. With that said, we hope you enjoy watching as much as we have enjoyed living it. Stay tuned for future episodes!
In our premiere episode, we follow Patti around Europe as she vacations and prepares to perform one of her cabaret acts, "The Gypsy in My Soul", on the Celebrity Silhouette as it sails around the Mediterranean Sea. Filmed from July 24th - August 11th, 2011.
In our second installment of Entrances, Exits, and Everything in Between with Patti LuPone, we are given a sideline view of the backstage life at a Broadway show. As Patti performs "An Evening with Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin", we get to see how many factors go in to performing on the Broadway stage, and what happens when Patti gets an exciting offer in the middle of the run. Filmed from November 21st 2011 - January 13th, 2012.
In the third installment of Entrances, Exits, and Everything in Between with Patti LuPone, we travel from New York City to Washington, D.C. for the 2011 Kennedy Center Honors. In the great city of D.C. old friends were reunited, and new friends were made. Filmed from December 4th - December 5th, 2011.
