Mandy Patinkin Dresses Casual at Palace

Emmy Award-winning actor and Broadway legend Mandy Patinkin will perform an exclusive Connecticut engagement of his critically acclaimed theatre concert, Mandy Patinkin: Dress Casual, at the Palace Theater in Waterbury Sunday, April 10 4pm.

Mandy Patinkin: Dress Casual presents the acclaimed actor, singer and storyteller in what critics are calling his most electrifying role to date: concert performer. From Irving Berlin and Stephen Sondheim to Cole Porter and Harry Chapin, Patinkin, accompanied by the incomparable Paul Ford on piano, takes audiences on a dazzling musical journey they won’t soon forget.

As a Tony and Emmy Award-winner, Patinkin has an extensive list of theatre credits that include Broadway, Off-Broadway and regional theater. He won a Tony for his 1980 Broadway debut as “Che” in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Evita and was again nominated in 1984 for his starring role in the Pulitzer Prize winning musical Sunday in the Park With George. He returned to Broadway in the Tony Award-winning musical The Secret Garden (1991), appeared as Marvin in Falsettos (1992) and in 1997 played a sold-out engagement of his one-man concert, Mandy Patinkin in Concert. Patinkin’s other solo concerts, Celebrating Sondheim and Mamaloshen, have been presented on Broadway, Off-Broadway and have toured the US.

In 1995, Patinkin won an Emmy for his critically acclaimed performance in the CBS series “Chicago Hope,” and recently starred in the CBS series “Criminal Minds” as FBI profiler “Jason Gideon” and in the Showtime Original Series “Dead Like Me.” His most popular feature film credits include The Princess Bride, Yentl, and Ragtime, to name a few.

In 1989, Mandy began his concert career at Joseph Papp's Public Theater, coinciding with the release of his first solo album, Mandy Patinkin. Since then he has toured extensively, appearing to sold-out audiences across the U.S., Canada, London and Australia, performing songs from writers including Stephen Sondheim, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Irving Berlin, Randy Newman, Adam Guettel and Harry Chapin, among others. In 1990, he released his second solo album entitled Mandy Patinkin In Concert: Dress Casual on CBS Records.
