An Evening with Mandy Patinkin & Patti Lupone @ Cadillac Palace Theater

They haven't shared the stage since the early eighties, when she played the title character and he played Ché in the hit Broadway premiere of Evita (which ran for 1567 performances!), but for one week Chicagoans can can catch them for an evening of nostalgic Broadway classics and top-notch choreography by Tony Award-winner Ann Reinking.

A cult hero for his role in The Princess Bride, Chicago native Mandy "My name is Inigo Montoya" Patinkin has had a successful career in TV (Dead Like Me) and movies (Alien Nation, Dick Tracy), but he boasts a rabid following for his solo albums and wildly successful stage career. Lupone, a long-time Broadway veteran and musical theater staple, is a Tony, Grammy, Oliviet, and Drama Desk award winner. She's also a familiar face at Highland Park's Ravinia Festival, where she's been a regular performer since 2001.

The duo will perform songs by composers such as Richard Rodgers and Stephen Sondheim, as well as songwriters Vernon Duke, Antonio Carlos Jobim, and others. Patinkin promises he and Lupone will continue to perform this revue for the rest of their lives, but there's no telling when they'll be back in Chicago, so catch 'em while you can.

An Evening with Mandy Patinkin and Patti Lupone runs tonight through March 7 at the Cadillac Palace Theater (151 W Randolph Street). All performances start at 8pm. Ticket prices are $18 to $90 and may be ordered through Ticketmaster or by calling (312) 977-1710.

And please, for your safety, don't take any pictures.
