When Patti Lupone Haunted A Laundromat: "It was the pilot for a series called 'Hip Pocket Musicals,' which was pitched to PBS but never aired. Each episode would have been a different half-hour mini-musical with the same group of actors. The first one was called 'Love Cycle: A Soap Operetta,' and it starred LuPone as a vengeful ghost who haunts a laundromat." Direct link to the full video. The full "Love Cycle"script (pdf) via writer-producer David Misch's website, and a 2014 interview with "Love Cycle" creator Bill Burnett. David Misch previously.

Patti Lupone! She went to my high school and had the same choir director as I did. In my parents' piano bench still resides a set of sheet music with her signature in pencil. She's awesome.

*adjusts tie*

I'm married to a massive Patti Lupone fanboy (I mean, I think she's swell -- don't get me wrong) so I'm rather chuffed that he was totally unaware of "Love Cycle."

It's pretty amazing.

Thank you so much for this. Patti LuPone continues to rise in my esteem with every campy new thing I find her in.
