Before he was an Emmy®-winning TV and film actor, Mandy Patinkin was already a Tony®-winning Broadway star. Patinkin, star of the hit television series Homeland and one of the most versatile and compelling actors, singers and storytellers of our age, returns to Australia in November for the first time in five years to perform in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. Tickets are on sale from Friday 3 August.
“Mandy Patinkin is in the business of showstopping,” raves The New Yorker, and that’s exactly what he does in this powerful, passionate and intimate evening of song. From Randy Newman to Stephen Sondheim, from Irving Berlin to Rufus Wainwright, Mandy takes you on a dazzling musical journey you’ll never forget. Mandy Patinkin In Concert: Diaries 2018 with Adam Ben-David on Piano presents the acclaimed actor, singer and storyteller in his most electrifying role, concert performer.
Mandy has been described as “a classically trained but barely restrained stage actor. A no-holds-barred concert singer and a scene-stealing star of the big and small screens.” His stage performances are legendary, from his 1980 Broadway debut as Che in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Evita which won him a Tony® Award, and his Tony® Award-nominated starring role as George in the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical, Sunday in the Park with George in 1984, to his later stage credits in The Wild Party, Falsettos, The Secret Garden, The Winter’s Tale, Hamlet and Savages.
With a biography boasting lead roles in eclectic films such as Yentl, Ragtime, Impromptu, The Adventures of Elmo In Grouchland, Men with Guns, The Music of Chance, Daniel, The Doctor, Alien Nation, Dick Tracy, True Colors and the iconic The Princess Bride, as well as Homeland, Criminal Minds and Chicago Hope on television, Mandy is one of the most distinctive and talented performers working today.
Don’t miss this rare chance to be mesmerized by the imitable voice and charm of a Broadway legend, the unique and sensational Mandy Patinkin, accompanied by musical director Adam Ben-David.
