Sending all my love to @PattiLuPone . Robert lupone was such a nice person, he always supported us youth company members @mcctheater and was someone you could just talk too. I never felt like i bothered him when asking for advice because he was always willing to give it. 🕊🕊

When @mcctheater produced my play Still Life, for one performance Dominic Chianese, the actor playing Sarah Paulson’s father, couldn’t make a matinee & Bob filled in. Off book. Brilliantly. Ironically playing a man w/ pancreatic cancer. (Based on my dad) RIP Bobby. ❤️

That is beautiful. I remember that show here in Des Moines, and getting to chat with you. What a lovely memory to share.
He was one of the first people to welcome me into the theater community in New York City . He was fiercely loyal and kind – what a loss .
I am so sad to hear this news. God, what a force he was. Such clarity such passion and commitment. A heavy heart and my condolences to all of you.
