In his 1980 Broadway debut, Mandy won a Tony Award® for his role as Che in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Evita and was nominated in 1984 for his starring role in the Pulitzer Prize–winning musical, Sunday in the Park with George. In 1991 he returned to Broadway in the Tony Award®-winning musical The Secret Garden, in 1992 appeared as Marvin in Falsettos and in 1997 played a sold–out engagement of his one-man concert, with all profits going to benefit five charitable organizations. Other stage credits include The Wild Party, Mamaloshen, The Winter’s Tale, The Knife, Leave It to Beaver is Dead, Rebel Women, Hamlet, Trelawney of the ‘Wells’, The Shadow Box, The Split, Savages, and Henry IV, Part I. In 2004, Mandy played a six–week engagement of his one–man concert at the Off–Broadway complex Dodger Stages. In 1989, Mandy began his concert career at Joseph Papp’s Public Theater. This coincided with the release of his first solo album entitled Mandy Patinkin. Since then he has toured extensively, appearing to sold–out audiences across the United States, Canada and in London, performing songs from writers including Stephen Sondheim, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Irving Berlin, Adam Guettel and Harry Chapin, among others. In 1990 he released his second solo album entitled Mandy Patinkin In Concert: Dress Casual on CBS Records. His 1994 recording, Experiment, on the Nonesuch label, features songs from nine decades of popular music from Irving Berlin to Alan Menken. Also recorded on the Nonesuch label is Oscar & Steve and Leonard Bernstein’s New York. In 1998 he debuted his most personal project, Mamaloshen, a collection of traditional, classic and contemporary songs sung entirely in Yiddish. The stage production of Mamaloshen was performed on and off–Broadway and has toured throughout the country. The recording of Mamaloshen won the Deutschen Schallplattenpreis (Germany’s equivalent of the Grammy® Award). In 2001, Nonesuch Records released Kidults, a collection of beloved songs, designed — as the title suggests — for the kid in every adult. And, in 2002, Nonesuch Records released Mandy Patinkin Sings Sondheim, a figurative journey through Sondheim’s music and lyrics. Mandy resides in New York City with his wife, actress and writer Kathryn Grody, and their two sons.
