Mandy Patinkin

 

continued

For those who watch television, he's Jeffrey Geiger in Chicago Hope and Jason Gideon in Criminal Minds. For those who go to the movies, he's Iñigo Montoya in Rob Reiner's The Princess Bride and 88 Keys in Warren Beatty's Dick Tracy. For those who attend the theater, he's Ché in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Evita and George (Georges Seurat) in Stephen Sondheim's Sunday in the Park with George.

But whoever and whatever else he is, Patinkin is a singer, and at the Power Center on Saturday, June 28, what Patinkin will be doing is singing. Specifically, he'll be singing songs by Rodgers and Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim, Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, and other masters of the Great American Songbook. More specific than that it's hard to get, since Patinkin and his booking agent and his press contact aren't talking.

Some recent Patinkin shows, however, have featured Yip Harburg's "Brother, Can You Spare a Dime," Harry Carroll's "I'm Always Chasing Rainbows," and Johnny Burke's "Pennies from Heaven." Others have featured Sondheim's "Being Alive" from Company, "Too Many Mornings" from Follies, a medley from Sweeney Todd, and "Finishing the Hat" from Sunday in the Park with George. But no recent shows have featured songs from Evita, so Lloyd Webber fans are urged not to hold their breath waiting for "High Flying, Adored."
