    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 Mandy Patinkin

    Mandy Patinkin made his Broadway debut in 1980, won a Tony Award for his role as Che in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Evita, and was nominated for his starring role in the Pulitzer Prizewinning musical Sunday in the Park with George. In 1991, he returned to Broadway in the Tony Awardwinning musical The Secret Garden, in 1992 appeared as Marvin in Falsettos, and in 1997 played a sold-out engagement of his one-man concert, with all profits going to benefit five charitable organizations. Other stage credits include The Wild Party, The Winter's Tale, The Knife, Henry IV, Leave It to Beaver Is Dead, Rebel Women, Hamlet, Trelawney of the "Wells," The Shadow Box, The Split, and Savages.

    Patinkin's numerous feature film credits include The Adventures of Elmo In Grouchland, Men with Guns, The Princess Bride, Yentl, Lulu on the Bridge, The Music of Chance, Daniel, Ragtime, Impromptu, The Doctor, Alien Nation, Dick Tracy, The House on Carroll Street, True Colors, Maxie, and Squanto: Indian Warrior. He won a 1995 Emmy Award for his critically acclaimed performance in the CBS series Chicago Hope. Other television appearances include the CBS drama Criminal Minds, Strange Justice for Showtime, playing Quasimodo opposite Richard Harris in the TNT film presentation of The Hunchback, and a film version of Arthur Miller's Broken Glass for BBC/WGBH-Boston.

    In 1989, Patinkin began his concert career at Joseph Papp's Public Theater. This coincided with the release of his first solo album, Mandy Patinkin. Since then he has continued to tour extensively, appearing to sold-out audiences across the United States, Canada, and in London, 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. His 1994 recording, Experiment, on Nonesuch, features songs from nine decades of popular music from Irving Berlin to Alan Menken. Also recorded on Nonesuch are Oscar & Steve, Leonard Bernstein's New York, Kidults, and his most recent, Mandy Patinkin Sings Sondheim. During the summer of 1998, he debuted his most personal project, Mamaloshen, a collection of traditional, classic, and contemporary songs sung entirely in Yiddish, which won the “Deutschen Schallplattenpreis” (Germany’s equivalent of the Grammy). The stage production of Mamaloshen was performed on and off-Broadway and has toured throughout the country.
