Before he was an Emmy-winning TV star, Mandy Patinkin was already a Tony-winning Broadway legend. Mandy Patinkin: Dress Casual presents the acclaimed actor/singer/ storyteller in his most electrifying role: concert performer. “Mandy Patinkin is in the business of showstopping,” raves The New Yorker, and that’s exactly what he does in this powerful, passionate evening of popular song. From Irving Berlin to Stephen Sondheim, from Cole Porter to Harry Chapin, Mandy Patinkin takes you on a dazzling musical journey you’ll never forget.
Mandy Patinkin will perform as part of the Jonathan Samen Hot Buttons, Cool Conversations Discussion Series. The show will begin with a 50-minute musical performance, followed by a one-on-one conversation between Mandy and Robert Brustein, founder of The American Repertory Theatre in Cambridge and renowned theatre critic, producer, playwright and educator. After the discussion, Mandy and Robert will field questions from the audience.
Mandy’s Broadway credits include Evita (for which he won a Tony Award for his role as Che), Sunday in the Park with George, Mandy Patinkin in Concert and The Wild Party (Tony Nomination). On television, Patinkin has been seen on Chicago Hope, Criminal Minds and Homeland. His film credits include Yentl, Ragtime, Everybody’s Hero and The Princess Bride.
