  • 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."

    Music & lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, except disc one, track 1, book by James Lapine; disc two, track 12, music by Richard Rodgers. Arrangements by Paul Ford and Mandy Patinkin

    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.
