I agree entirely. She is a pro. She missed all of one performance in Gypsy (the day before recording the album), zero performances of Sweeney (except scheduled vacation, where she was replaced by no-slouch Judy Kaye), and a total of 4 performances in her last 3 Broadway straight plays combined. She did miss several performances of "Patti & Mandy", but who wants to see a two-hander when one of them is vomitting left and right with a bad flu? Patti seldom misses a show. If she misses the rare performance, history says she has a good reason. And, as I would in all such circumstances, I would recommend: GO SEE IT ANYWAY!
