  • Watch: Audra McDonald, Mandy Patinkin Perform at Colbert Report "Wedding of the Century"

    Audra McDonald and Mandy Patinkin were special guests on The Colbert Report, as the show threw what it humbly dubbed the "Wedding of the Century." Host Stephen Colbert officiated an on-air wedding ceremony for a couple whose wedding plans were thwarted by the US government shutdown. To help celebrate the newlyweds, Patinkin offered a non-denominational Jewish blessing and McDonald sang Billy Idol's "White Wedding" for the couple's first dance. Watch it here. Audra McDonald was due to perform at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC, this week, but the concert was canceled due to the government shutdown and will be rescheduled.

  • Watch: Mandy Patinkin, Stephen Colbert, Michael Stipe Sing "Good King Wenceslas" on "The Colbert Report"

    Mandy Patinkin continued the holiday sing-along at The Colbert Report when he joined Stephen Colbert and REM's Michael Stipe to sing the traditional carol "Good King Wenceslas" on Comedy Central last night. Watch the performance here. The trio performance closed out an episode of the show in which Patinkin and Colbert engaged in a spirited discussion of his role as Saul Berenson on the hit Showtime series Homeland and much more. It also follows the previous night's duet between Colbert and Audra McDonald on "Baby It's Cold Outside."

About this Album

The CD of this album is available to purchase at ArkivMusic.

Tony Award–winning actor/singer Mandy Patinkin employs Broadway classics to create an album-length suite about the life-long arc of a relationship. Patinkin, notes the New York Times, "incorporates a song into his being and then releases it in an emotional eruption fraught with tension and personal catharsis."
