Yes, but also, ALL of the unpleasantness could have been avoided if they had waited until SUNSET had opened on Broadway, with LuPone, before casting and opening another production in L.A.

But Frank Rich reviewed the London opening in the New York Times and called Patti "miscast and unmoving." Surely that was discouraging in terms of LuPone continuing on to Broadway, Glenn or no Glenn.

As fate would have it, Rich was no longer the Times critic by the time "Sunset" opened in NY, but the die had been cast.
