Back in 2002, we went to see Mandy Patinkin in concert, and it was a great show. (Here's a link to my review of the show: http://www.colddeadfish.net/entertai...kinreview.html.) He had mentioned possibly doing a tour with Patti Lupone (with whom he worked on "Evita") in a kind of history of musical theatre, and it sounded like it would be an amazing show. Shortly thereafter, Mandy landed the lead in the TV show "Criminal Minds", so we knew no tour would be happening. Ever since it was announced recently that he had left the show, I'd thought to look into his tour schedule to see what was happening.
They *are* apparently doing such a tour. I found a theatre in Palm Desert, CA where they're doing the show for two nights - January 18 and 19, 2008. Here's a link: http://www.mccallumtheatre.com/show_details.php?id=18. They don't have any info about the show on that site, but frankly, we didn't care - Mandy and Patti on the same stage together - we're so there.
They're also doing a week's engagement in a theatre in Philadelphia this October, and this listing tells you something about the show: http://www.princemusictheater.org/ho...kin&tickets=no.
I'm so excited to see them!
