Watch Patti LuPone Give a Quarantine Basement Tour After Her Rosie Show Performance

March 23rd, 2020 | By Michael Appler

Oh, to be a fly on Patti LuPone’s basement wall. If you tuned in to’s one-night-only return of The Rosie O’Donnell Show on March 22 and caught LuPone’s basement a cappella performance of “A Hundred Years From Today” and “Smile,” you may have also seen her jukebox shining in the background, dreaming a dream of times gone by. After LuPone’s guest appearance, fans were so enthralled with the Tony winner’s vintage decor that LuPone took to Twitter to give us a tour. She showed us a number of basement knickknacks, including but not limited to an RCA dog, a one-armed bandit slot machine, a massage table, a “desk I’ve had for a million years,” a broken Baldwin piano and a pinball machine nestled next to two wine coolers.

Watch LuPone’s Twitter tour below, and see her full guest appearance on The Rosie O’Donnell Show here.
