Mandy Patinkin, star of Channel 10’s hit series Homeland and one of the most versatile and compelling actors, singers and storytellers of our time, joins forces with one of the world’s most in-demand and leading opera baritones, Nathan Gunn for an evening of show tunes, pop music, opera, and Americana song.
The Chicago Review-Examiner described the show as “nothing short of genius, giving [concert] goers a night of musical excellence they will long remember.”
The duo performs roughly two-dozen songs including solos and duets, some from Mandy’s world of Broadway and some showcasing Nathan’s operatic brilliance, including Lily’s Eyes, Maria, If I Loved You and Rossini’s Barber of Seville.
