Info for Diary: April/May 2018
The second in a series of musical installments from Tony and Emmy Award–winning singer/actor Mandy Patinkin and pianist/producer Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman)—Diary: April/May 2018—is out today on Nonesuch Records. The digital release's fourteen songs were recorded by the two musicians in Bartlett's New York studio in the spring of this year.
The fourteen tracks of this second Diary entry include three Randy Newman songs, two by Patinkin himself, and one track each from Laurie Anderson, Keren Ann, Bob Dylan, Patty Griffin, Harry Nilsson, Tom Waits, Lyle Lovett, Taylor Mac, and Stephen Sondheim. This fall, Patinkin will perform songs from the Diary series with pianist Adam Ben David in New York City, Palo Alto, Honolulu, and Australia; details may be found at nonesuch.com/on-tour. Patinkin and Bartlett plan to reconvene soon to record another collection of songs for a third Diary volume.
Patinkin, who has played CIA agent Saul Berenson on Showtime's Emmy and Golden Globe Award–winning Homeland for the last seven seasons, recently received his fourth Emmy nomination for the role (the awards are this Monday, September 17). The eighth and final season of Homeland begins filming in January 2019. Patinkin has released six previous albums on Nonesuch; the most recent were 2002's Mandy Patinkin Sings Sondheim and Diary: January 27, 2018, released earlier this year.
As Patinkin explains, "After thirty years my musical collaborator, Paul Ford retired. I wasn't sure if that meant I would have to as well. But my dear friend Bob Hurwitz [of Nonesuch] introduced me to Thomas Bartlett, who introduced me to an entirely new way of making music … in his studio, hours of playing, singing, and recording, never searching for the illusion of perfection." He continues, "We've decided to share our music making journey with you, in the form of a Diary. Hope you enjoy, and thanks for listening."
Mandy Patinkin is well known for his portrayal of Inigo Montoya in the 1987 movie The Princess Bride. He most recently played Irwin in Dan Fogelman's Life Itself, which opens September 21, 2018. Patinkin's other film credits include Yentl (1983), Alien Nation (1988), Dick Tracy (1990), Wish I Was Here (2014), and Wonder (2017), among many others. In addition to his role on Homeland, he has appeared in major roles in television series such as Chicago Hope (Emmy Award), Dead Like Me, and Criminal Minds. Patinkin is a noted interpreter of the musical works of Stephen Sondheim and is acclaimed for his work in musical theater, originating iconic roles such as Georges Seurat in Sunday in the Park with George and Che in the original Broadway production of Evita (Tony Award). Additionally, Patinkin has been passionately involved in volunteer work with various NGOs throughout his life, and currently travels the world with the International Rescue Committee, spending time with refugees and raising awareness of their plight.
Thomas Bartlett, also known as Doveman, is an American pianist, singer, and producer. He has worked with many Nonesuch artists—including Sam Amidon, Olivia Chaney, David Byrne, The Magnetic Fields, Nico Muhly on Peter Pears, Mandy Patinkin, and Chris Thile—as well as Sufjan Stevens, Glen Hansard, The National, St. Vincent, Father John Misty, Rhye, Florence + The Machine, The Gloaming, Martha Wainwright, and others.

In 1997 he played a sold-out Broadway engagement of Mandy Patinkin in Concert, with all profits benefiting five charitable organizations, and in 1999, while on tour, Mandy ended each concert by heading to the theater lobby with a cardboard box, asking patrons to empty their pockets for PAX, a gun safety organization, and Doctors Without Borders, in response to both the Columbine shooting and the Bosnian War.
In addition to his solo concerts, Mandy has created collaborations with artists including opera super-star Nathan Gunn in An Evening with Mandy Patinkin & Nathan Gunn; with his dear friend Patti LuPone in An Evening with Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin which has toured since 2007 and played Broadway in 2012; Bridges, a concert with musicians from various countries in the Middle East; and most recently, The Last Two People on Earth: An Apocalyptic Vaudeville, with Taylor Mac, and direction and choreography by Susan Stroman.

In television, Mandy won a 1995 Emmy Award for his performance in the CBS series ”Chicago Hope”, and starred in the CBS series “Criminal Minds” and in the Showtime Original Series “Dead Like Me”. Currently, he can be seen in the Award-winning Showtime Original Series “Homeland” as CIA Agent Saul Berenson.
