The Harry & Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center proudly presents a signature event in its Tapestry: Arts & Ideas season, featuring Tony and Emmy Award winning artist Mandy Patinkin.
“This experience, bringing in a talent of Mandy’s caliber while also deeply connecting to the JCC’s mission and vision, is a both a culmination of our growth as a destination for culture – and a launch pad for all the innovative work to come,” said JCC President & Chief Executive Officer Mark Shapiro. “Mandy is so many different things to so many different people – Inigo Montoya to George Seurat, acclaimed singer to television star – that this concert should appeal to the diversity of the community we’re blessed to serve.”
Mandy Patinkin in Concert: DIARIES 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 song. DIARIES is a marriage of many of Mandy’s favorite Broadway and classic American tunes, along with selections from his newest recordings on Nonesuch Records, Mandy Patinkin Diary January 2018 and Mandy Patinkin Diary April/May 2018. From Randy Newman to Stephen Sondheim, from Harry Chapin to Rufus Wainwright, Mandy Patinkin takes you on a dazzling musical journey you’ll never forget.
As diverse as his professional life has been, Mandy’s education in the field of social activism has been even more varied and continues to evolve. He has helped raise funds for organizations dear to his heart including Brady Campaign, PAX, Association to Benefit Children, American Jewish World Service, Search For Common Ground, National Dance Institute, and ACLU. Mandy is a board member of the Arava Institute and continues to work with the International Rescue Committee (IRC), highlighting the plight of refugees worldwide.
“Beyond an evening of exceptional music, storytelling, and community building – it’s a privilege to bring in an artist whose character matches his talent. The things Mandy cares about and works for – equality, dignity, access – are all things we’re going to continue funding from the benefits of this program,” added Shapiro.
