From 7-years-old performing at a synagogue in the southside of Chicago to making his way to Detroit to sing at the Fisher Theatre, actor Mandy Patinkin has always found a way to the spotlight.
“I’ve always loved it. It’s where I feel I express myself best.” — Mandy Patinkin, actor, on performing on Broadway
Some of his most iconic roles have been in the Showtime series “Homeland” and as Inigo Montoya in “The Princess Bride,” but since 1989, Patinkin has had a solo career performing his favorite Broadway tunes and pop songs to audiences in New York and around the country.
Patinkin released the album “Children and Art” in 2019 — his first since 2002 — on Nonesuch Records. It featured renditions of songs by Tom Waits, Lyle Lovett, Stephen Sondheim and Patinkin himself.
