A second creation opened up in LA starring Glenn Close, and quickly there were gossips that Close, a larger film celebrity than LuPone, will be the Broadway Norma Desmond rather. The rumors had been verified by Lloyd Webber in Feb 1994. Having breached LuPone’s agreement, he was pressured to pay out her funds reported to maintain the range of 1 million dollars.

1 [after snatching a cellphone during a performance] We work hard onstage to create a world that is being totally destroyed by a few rude, self-absorbed and inconsiderate audience members.
2 I'm fairly tough on anybody who isn't there for the play. I'm very tough on people who are in it for the wrong reason. I'm very tough on people who don't remember that there's an audience out there paying a lot of money. The bottom line is that I love the theater. I realized when I came back [after an absence in L.A.] and put my foot on the boards, this is where I belong.
3 I'm totally Italian, and it's a big personality. But I'm not a diva. If you could see the way I'm dressed in daily life, that's not a diva. Appearances are so not important to me.
4 For a long time, I don't think people thought I was capable of comedy. I mean, I'm Italian, so crying has always been easy for me - our emotions are just underneath the skin. But I've always had a black sense of humor, and I've always been able to find humor in any situation.
5 I knew before I knew anything else that my career was in Europe. I wanted a career there. I've always thought that was who I am and that what I look like belongs in Italy. I made a film there and I looked around and thought, 'God, I'm a beauty here. I mean, I'm really gorgeous here.'
6 The audiences that inspire me are the ones that are not asleep.
