Hosted by writer and comedian Amber Ruffin, the event will be accessible worldwide via livestream, and will be recorded for “You and Me Both with Hillary Clinton,” an iHeartPodcast where Secretary Clinton sits down with people she finds fascinating for candid, in-depth, and sometimes hilarious discussions about topics that shape their lives.

Of the upcoming conversation, Secretary Clinton said, “Ever since I launched my podcast in 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic, I have been eager to do an in-person event. And so I am thrilled to be joining with Patti LuPone, one of my favorite artists, and our host for the evening, Amber Ruffin, for the first-ever live taping of ‘You and Me Both.’ I am a long-time fan of Patti’s work, and can’t wait to talk with her about her remarkable career and what’s going on in the world.” 

Secretary Clinton’s on-stage interview of LuPone is signature Symphony Space. The institution features Broadway stars—LaChanze, Andrew Rannells, Danny Burstein, Carolee Carmello, and Nikki Renée Daniels, to name just a few from 2023—in unexpected live events year-round, such as its renowned literature-in-performance series Selected Shorts and its beloved, free marathon event Wall to Wall. Symphony Space is also a favorite destination for revealing live conversations between major authors and artists including, recently, Tom Hanks and David Remnick, George R.R. Martin and Neil Gaiman, and Maggie Rogers and Questlove. The upcoming event marks a return to Symphony Space for LuPone, who participated in the institution’s acclaimed two-week Broadway celebration Project B-Way/95 in 2016. 

The episode of “You and Me Both with Hillary Clinton” recorded at Symphony Space will be available for listening beginning November 14. “You and Me Both with Hillary Clinton” is distributed by iHeartPodcasts and is available now on the iHeartRadio app and everywhere podcasts are heard.
