Tony award winner Patinkin to appear

 

Mandy Patinkin, a Tony and Emmy award-winning performer, will appear in concert Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2019, at the Riverside Theater, an event offered by the Harry & Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center.

Patinkin played Inigo Montoya in the 1987 film “The Princess Bride.” He has been the voice of Papa Smurf and appeared in “Yentl” and “Dick Tracy.” He won a Tony Award for his role in “Evita” on Broadway and won an Emmy Award for his role on “Chicago Hope.”

The concert, called “Mandy Patinkin in Concert: DIARIES,” will be a mixture of many of Patinkin’s favorite Broadway and classic American tunes, along with selections from his newest recordings on Nonesuch Records.

Patinkin is not only an acclaimed actor, singer and storyteller, but he is a board member of the Arava Institute, a leading environmental studies and research institute in the Middle East, and works with the International Rescue Committee, according to a news release. His social advocacy work also includes support of causes such as American Jewish World Service, Doctors Without Borders, Americans for Peace Now, PAX and the International Rescue Committee.

“Beyond an evening of exceptional music, storytelling, and community building – it’s a privilege to bring in an artist whose character matches his talent,” JCC President and Chief Executive Officer Mark Shapiro said.

Tickets for “Mandy Patinkin in Concert: DIARIES,” presented by the JCC, are at PabstTheater.org.
