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.

    Mandy Patinkin contrasts the songs and sensibilities of Broadway legends Oscar Hammerstein II and Stephen Sondheim. He "crafts a series of interpretations that are often genuinely affecting," declares the Washington Post, "and never more so than when he's meditating on the endlessly curious nature of romance."
