Patti LuPone cursed out a Broadway patron for not properly wearing a face mask, online videos show.
"If you don't want to follow the rule get the fuck out. I'm serious," LuPone said inside a Manhattan theater.
"Who do you think you are that you do not respect the people that are sitting around you," LuPone continued.
Legendary singer and actress Patti LuPone cursed out a Broadway patron in front of a packed audience for not properly wearing a face mask following a performance of the hit musical "Company," which she stars in.
"Put your mask over your nose — that's why you're in the theater. That is the rule," the two-time Tony Award winner told a theater-goer this week as she sat on a New York City stage alongside fellow "Company" cast members for a post-show discussion, videos posted to Twitter show.
"If you don't want to follow the rule get the fuck out. I'm serious," LuPone said to the sounds of applause and cheers from the audience inside the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre in Manhattan.

The Broadway icon continued eviscerating the audience member: "Who do you think you are that you do not respect the people that are sitting around you!"
A woman seated in the theater's second row, who LuPone directed her anger at, then yelled, "I pay your salary!"
"You pay my salary. Bullshit! Chris Harper pays my salary!" LuPone responded as she referenced the producer of "Company."
"Who do you think you are?" LuPone again snapped. "Just put your mask over your nose."

The incident comes months after 73-year-old LuPone tested positive for COVID-19, forcing her to miss several performances of "Company."
Though mask mandates have been largely dropped in New York City and across the country, masks are still required for audience members at all Broadway theaters through at least May 31.
