    Mandy Patinkin in Concert Comes to London's West End
    Carole Segal

    Mandy Patinkin celebrated the 20th anniversary of his first performance at New York's Public Theater last month with a two-week run of concerts at the famed venue. Starting this Thursday, Mandy takes the show to the UK for a ten-day residency at the Duke of Yorks Theatre in London's West End. While the New York performances included three distinct programs—Dress Casual, Celebrating Sondheim, and Mamaloshen—the London shows are simply titled Mandy Patinkin in Concert and, like Dress Casual, will feature works by a range of celebrated songwriters and composers from Mandy's vast repertoire, from Rodgers and Hammerstein to Stephen Sondheim to Harry Chapin.

    While in London, Mandy appeared on Monday's edition of BBC Radio 3's weekday arts series In Tune and spoke with host Sean Rafferty about the upcoming performances and his long and varied career. You can listen to the episode online at bbc.co.uk/radio3 till January 12. Mandy's segment begins at about 70 minutes in and includes music from a number of Mandy's Nonesuch recordings: Mandy Patinkin Sings Sondheim, Kidults, and Oscar and Steve.

    Mandy also spoke with The Times of London's David Cote for a profile that examines the performer's career, tracking his concerts back to his initial Public Theatre event 20 years ago and his musical-theatre career back to his Tony Award–winning turn as Che Guevara in Evita, for, with all of the unforgettable on-screen acting credits to his name, from the Princess Bride to Dick Tracy, says Cote, it's his stage work for which Mandy has received the greatest praise.
