News & Reviews

  • Randy Newman, Mandy Patinkin, and Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy joined a panoply of performers, politicians, diplomats, musicians, actors, journalists, writers, athletes, Sesame Street notables and more for the final episode of The Colbert Report last night. Newman, at the piano, accompanied host Stephen Colbert and this cavalcade of stars, friends, and well-wishers, both in the studio and afar (even far, far away in outer space), to bid the show a fond farewell, singing a rousing rendition of the classic tune “We’ll Meet Again.” You can watch the stellar sing-a-long here.

     

  • Many Patinkin was featured on CBS's 60 Minutes last night, joining correspondent Bob Simon for an in-depth, honest conversation about his life and a lifetime in musical theatre, on television, and in film. He "is one of the most versatile performers we've ever met," says Simon. "I'm a lyrically driven person," he tells Simon. "That's why I love Sondheim. That's why I love Shakespeare. That's why I love Irving Berlin and Rodgers and Hammerstein and Tom Waits and Paul Simon and Randy Newman. They're storytellers." See Patinkin's story in the complete 60 Minutes piece here.

  • About This Album

    The actor-singer-Broadway star offers a deeply personal survey of Sondheim's repertoire on this double disc, recorded live at Philadelphia's Prince Music Theatre. The album, says the Chicago Sun-Times, "suggests why Patinkin has long been considered a quintessential Sondheim interpreter."

    Before the original Broadway production of Sunday in the Park with George opened in May 1984, Mandy Patinkin took a life-drawing class at the Arts Student League in New York City, as his role required him to sketch his fellow actors playing the various characters in George Seurat’s painting, Sunday Afternoon on the Island of la Grande Jatte. The cover is one of a collection of sketches Patinkin made on stage throughout the show’s run.
