Tony and Emmy Award-winner Mandy Patinkin is to appear Live In Concert at the Lyric Theatre, London for 8 performances only from 7 November 2023.
The Dodgers and Staci Levine are delighted to produce Broadway’s master songman, Mandy Patinkin, accompanied by Adam Ben-David on piano, in Mandy Patinkin Live in Concert at the Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue in London’s West End for strictly eight performances only from Tuesday 7 November 2023. This is the first time Mandy has appeared on the West End stage since 2009. Tickets go on sale from 10am today, Friday 18 August.
To some fans, he’s the Tony Award-winning revolutionary from Evita who grew into a bonafide Broadway star in Sunday in the Park with George. To others, he’s the Emmy Award-winning Best Actor, for his portrayal of Dr. Jeffrey Geiger in Chicago Hope, or Saul Berenson of Homeland. To some, he’s Madonna’s piano man in Dick Tracy or the scholar who made Streisand swoon in Yentl. And to others still, he will always be the man whose name is Inigo Montoya, the swashbuckling swordsman in The Princess Bride. But whichever role you know him for, Mandy Patinkin’s favourite is reaching out to live audiences with the power and the passion of popular song. He belongs to the special breed of singer who doesn’t merely dramatize songs, but incorporates them into his very being.
Mandy Patinkin Live In Concert presents the acclaimed actor/singer/storyteller in his most electrifying role: concert performer. Mandy Patinkin Live in Concert is a marriage of many of Mandy’s favourite Broadway and classic American tunes, from Rodgers and Hammerstein to Stephen Sondheim, from Harry Chapin and Randy Newman to Irving Berlin and Meredith Willson.
Mandy will be accompanied on stage by pianist Adam Ben-David who has been working with Mandy since 2016. He has been active as an arranger, music director, conductor and pianist on Broadway for the past 22 years. Adam’s credits include The Book of Mormon, Jersey Boys, Spring Awakening, Wicked, High Fidelity, The Light in the Piazza, Bombay Dreams, Aida and Once Upon a Mattress. He has accompanied numerous artists including Kelli O’Hara, Jarrod Spector, James Taylor, Patti LuPone and Megan Hilty.
