The weekly series created and directed by LuPone's son, Josh Johnston, follows around the two-time Tony winner as she performs, loses her luggage, and everything in betweem. Johnston has said in the video's YouTube description that the show aims to give aspiring performs and fans an insight into "what it's like in the shoes of a veteran of the craft."
