An Important Voice: Mandy Patinkin

Tuesday, March 25, 2014

The New Yorker called him "a subtle actor," which minimizes the case. Mandy is a brilliant actor, credible down to the last word, mysterious, moving, and honest, and, as well, a remarkable singer, a theatrical figure, melancholy, and vigorously hilarious in much of his music.
