A press statement reads, "Due to complications associated with the labour dispute at St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts that are beyond our control, we are rescheduling the Mandy Patinkin Mamaloshen concert to June 16 and 17, 2012. Harold Green Jewish Theatre Company apologizes for any inconvenience and we look forward to closing our fifth anniversary season of stars with this wonderful concert."
Tickets purchased will be honored on the June dates. For refunds or exchanges, contact the St. Lawrence Centre Box Office at (416) 366-7723.
Mamaloshen, according to press notes, "is a testament to the rich variety of Jewish musical tradition, from Belz to Broadway, Yiddish Theater to Tin Pan Alley, and to the spirited resilience of its creators."
Patinkin won a Tony Award for his role as Che in the Broadway mounting of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's Evita. His theatrical work includes roles in Compulsion, The Wild Party, Sunday in the Park with George, The Secret Garden and The Knife. An Emmy Award winner for his work on "Chicago Hope," his other screen credits include "Criminal Minds," "Yentl," "Ragtime," "Dick Tracy," "Broken Glass," "Life with Mikey" and "The Princess Bride." Patinkin's latest solo recording, "Mandy Patinkin Sings Sondheim," is available on the Nonesuch label.
During the summer of 1998, he debuted Mamaloshen, which has played both on and off-Broadway and has also toured extensively. He will return to Broadway later this season in a critically acclaimed act with fellow Tony winner Patti LuPone. Founded in 2006, the Harold Green Jewish Theatre Company is Toronto’s only professional theatre company established to celebrate, illuminate and share Jewish culture.
