After stunning the world with a bravura performance on Britain's Got Talent, singer Susan Boyle's debut album I Dreamed a Dream became the best-selling album in the history of the UK. And the fairy tale has only continued for the humble Scot with a golden mezzo-soprano voice, who went on to sing for sold-out crowds around the world, release four more albums and be nominated for two Grammys. Funny and charming in person, she brings her formidable talent to Balboa Theatre, singing new album tracks and never-heard-before classics as part of her first headlining tour in the U.S. Learn More

Perhaps the speakers sounded better in the orchestra section, but most people around me at the upper reaches of the balcony couldn't hear much. And no, I'm not hard of hearing, as the person opening her wrapped candy made a big impression on our section for several minutes.
I also wanted to like Patti LuPone more. I knew she wasn't going to sing Broadway standards, but the monologue delivery between songs seemed a bit stale. In fact it sounded right off the CD, in other words, rehearsed. The musicians were a good bunch though - bass was left to the synthesizer to recreate, which seemed a bit odd. I liked the guitar solo pieces the best, maybe because then we could hear Patti. Now that I think about it, her encore - sans mic - may have sounded the best in the balcony, and seemed the least rehearsed. We could actually hear her then, and apparently all the candies had been unwrapped.
My wife said she was glad we only paid Goldstar pricing for the show - it made the pain of the expenditure seems less. I can't disagree.
