MANDY PATINKIN

From Broadway’s Evita and Sunday in the Park with George, to movies The Princess Bride and Yentl and TV roles on “Chicago Hope” and “Homeland,” Emmy and Tony Award winner Mandy Patinkin has been fortunate to carve out a varied career including theater, the concert stage, film, television, and as a recording artist.
