About the Show
Tony Award-winner Mandy Patinkin's solo musical concert celebrating the power of music.
Before he was an Emmy-winning TV star, Mandy Patinkin had already won a Tony Award in the 1980 production of 'Evita' (he would go on to be nominated for another two Tonys for his performances in 'Sunday in the Park with George' and 'The Wild Party').
In his newest show, Mandy Patinkin takes on the role of concert performer in an evening filled with sone. From Rodgers & Hammerstein to Stephen Sondheim, from Harry Chapin to Irving Berlin and Cole Porter, Mandy Patinkin takes audiences on a musical journey that celebrates the power & beauty music brings to all our lives.
“Throughout, Patinkin is accompanied by the extraordinary pianist Adam Ben-David – although the potency of their collaboration is such that it’s more like a duet. I’ve rarely heard such sensitive and comprehensive accompaniment. Patinkin himself is a beguiling mix of skilful and silly, a supreme performer and a shambolic one. His voice is like a lightning bolt, utterly thrilling”
“...a tale of a father pining for his estranged son to which Patinkin gave his all, capturing the tragedy of the ages in his cracking vibrato against simple backing by the pianist Adam Ben-David. This is what Patinkin did best, reduce a song to its emotional essence.”
