BLINDSIDED

I've been loving Mandy's voice/style for decades and last night I finally saw him perform. I cried through the whole show. At first it was from happiness and then it was from sadness. It was moving - downhill slowly. I'm so sad that I left a Bucket List stunned and confused. People couldn't get out fast enough. :(

MANDY NO MORE

I, too, was very disappointed in Mandy Patinkin's concert. An exhilarating performer in the past, he has chosen this time to sing a selection of songs that all sound the same: distressing, depressing, and deflating. Where has the old Mandy gone?

#2/ DISAPPOINTED IN MANDY

I meant also to add to my earlier comments that it would have been helpful if Mandy had shared with the audience the origins of the songs he was singing and some sense of why he was selecting them. Perhaps such commentary would have leavened the darkness of it all.

DISAPPOINTED

Big Mandy fan. Very disappointed in the selection of numbers. Appeared to be very tired.

DISAPPOINTING

Love Mandy but his voice was just not there. It was shaky, weak and often simply off pitch. The song selections might have been touching if they didn’t continue on a dreary dirge of nostalgia and contrived sentimentality. His attempt at singing Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody was confusing as to whether we were meant to think it was parody or an earnest effort. I actually felt insulted that anyone would think an audience would enjoy the performance. I’m sorry to be so negative but i think there is a limit to how poor a show can be but banking on the draw of the name to sell tickets. Very disappointing.

MANDY PATINKIN

Very morbid show. Songs depressing Audience almost stopped clapping half way thru

1.0 star rating Sammy from Washington, District of Columbia

DEPRESSING SHOW, NO VOICE

I just don't get it. His voice is extremely limited. Yes, he's extremely dramatic, to the point of being overwrought. Very strange selection of unfamiliar songs that were uniformly depressing. Lots of empty seats in the theatre (we got decent tickets last minute, that should have been a sign). Most of the audience seemed pleased, but I assume they are long-time Mandy fans, applauding him for his lifetime of achievement -- not this performance. Maybe he used to be a good performer, but doesn't have it any more. Rather sad.

Disappointing. Couldn’t wait to get out of there.

ALSO SAD

I have loved Mandy work for years... so I had high expectations. He seemed tired and his voice was just not really there past the opening song which was amazing. I did not get the link between songs and would have liked a few more details between songs... Mandy go on a vacation and perhaps get some voice therapy......

LET DOWN

I have loved Mandy's work for years. The show was disappointing... after the first number. By the half way point I was wishing to leave but kept thinking he could turn it around. He seemed tired and in need of rest and voice therapy. I was upset that I had ventured out on a rainy night and spent over $100.00 on this. Not worth going....
