    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.

    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.
