Before he was an Emmy-winning TV star, Mandy Patinkin was already a Tony-winning Broadway legend. Mandy Patinkin: Dress Casual presents the acclaimed actor/singer/storyteller in his most electrifying role: concert performer. “Mandy Patinkin is in the business of showstopping,” raves The New Yorker, and that’s exactly what he does in this powerful, passionate evening of popular song. From Irving Berlin to Stephen Sondheim, from Cole Porter to Harry Chapin, Mandy Patinkin takes you on a dazzling musical journey you’ll never forget.
Winner of the 1980 Tony Award for his Broadway debut as Che in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Evita, Mandy was again nominated in 1984 for his starring role in the Pulitzer Prize winning musical Sunday in the Park With George. He won the 1995 Emmy Award for his critically acclaimed performance in the CBS series "Chicago Hope," and starred in the CBS series "Criminal Minds" the Showtime Original Series “Dead Like Me” and has recently returned to TV in the new Showtime Original Series "Homeland". He is known for his broad range of work in film, but is most recognized for Yentl, Alien Nation, Dick Tracy and of course for his memorable role as Inigo Montoya in The Princess Bride.
