After wrapping production on the eighth and final season of Showtime’s Homeland, Tony and Emmy Award winner Mandy Patinkin is launching a 30-city concert tour of Mandy Patinkin in Concert: DIARIES, accompanied by Adam Ben-David on piano. The tour includes a performance on November 29 at National Theatre.

Mandy Patinkin in Concert: DIARIES showcases the acclaimed talent in his most electrifying role: concert performer. In this passionate evening of song, Patinkin will put his own spin on Broadway and classic American tunes, along with selections from his newest digital recordings. From Randy Newman to Stephen Sondheim, from Harry Chapin to Rufus Wainwright, Patinkin is the rare performer who can make audiences feel that they are hearing these songs for the very first time.

Nonesuch Records will also release Patinkin’s first new album since 2002 this fall. The collection of songs was recorded in New York with pianist and producer Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman); some have been previewed over the last two years as part of Patinkin’s digital Diary series.

“Singing onstage is one of the greatest joys in my life,” said Mandy Patinkin. “I was introduced to Thomas, who showed me an entirely new way of making music-in his studio, hours of playing, singing, and recording, never searching for the illusion of perfection. We’ve shared our music-making journey in the form of digital recordings and we release our newest CD this fall. My concert tour, with pianist Adam Ben-David, will include music from these albums along with Broadway and classic American songs. We look forward to sharing this music with you, wherever you are.”

Mandy Patinkin in Concert: DIARIES is produced and managed by Staci Levine. Lighting Design by Nathan W. Scheuer, Sound Design by Daniel J. Gerhard, and Video Design by Tom Kalin.Matthew Aaron Stern is Production and Stage Manager. Tour Booking Agent is L. Glenn Poppleton.

Tickets to Mandy Patinkin In Concert: DIARIES at National Theatre range from $65 to $125.
