About the Mandy Patinkin show
“Mandy Patinkin in Concert: DIARY” presents the acclaimed actor/singer/storyteller in his most electrifying role: concert performer. “Mandy Patinkin is in the business of show stopping,” raves The New Yorker, and that’s exactly what he does in this powerful, passionate evening of song. From Randy Newman to Stephen Sondheim, from Irving Berlin to Rufus Wainwright, Mandy Patinkin takes you on a dazzling musical journey you’ll never forget.
Patinkin is most known for his portrayal of Inigo Montoya in the 1987 movie The Princess Bride. Other film credits include Yentl (1983), Alien Nation (1988), and Dick Tracy (1990), among others. He has also appeared in numerous TV series, including Chicago Hope, Dead Like Me, Criminal Minds, and the Showtime series Homeland. In 1980 he won a Tony Award for Best Featured Actor in the Musical Evita, and in 1995 he won a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for Chicago Hope.
Hawaii Theatre Center is continuing its Broadway Comes to Hawaii series into next year, with appearances by Terry Fator, Chazz Palminteri and Bernadette Peters. The theatre will also be welcoming Na Leo Pilimehana to the stage, as well as Kuana’s Christmas Show and the Honolulu Symphony “Holiday Pops” program, and the non-profit is partnering with the Chinatown Arts district in promoting local artists in a new Pantheon Contemporary arts space located at 1121 Nuuanu on First Fridays. Hawaii Theatre Center is focused on making the arts available to the community, while preserving Hawaii’s last remaining majestic theatre.
