Emmy-and-Tony Award winner Mandy Patinkin will perform a solo show Mandy Patinkin: In Concert at Rose Theater in Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall for one night only, Monday, May 23rd, 7:30pm.
Presented by the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene (NYTF), and honoring the 18-year legacy of commitment in bringing Yiddish culture to the masses by Artistic Director Zalmen Mlotek and his wife Debra Mlotek, the concert will benefit NYTF and celebrate its 101st consecutive season.
Patinkin, who currently plays Saul Berenson on Showtime’s hit series Homeland, will perform an eclectic program of songs including those from his critically-acclaimed concerts Dress Casual and the groundbreaking in-Yiddish Mamaloshen.
Broadway Music Director and Conductor Adam Ben-David will accompany Patinkin on piano. The concert is produced by Moishe Rosenfeld with NYTF Executive Director Bryna Wasserman and Executive Producer Christopher Massimine.
Inspired by the late Public Theater’s impresario Joseph Papp’s efforts to reinvigorate Yiddish culture in New York, Patinkin became an avid supporter of the music, traditions, and language, which make the Yiddish culture so vibrant and unique. To this end, Patinkin has devoted much time and creative energies in efforts to promote the Yiddish culture and has become a passionate supporter of institutions like NYTF.
