Mandy Patinkin to Star in Paradise Found

This spring, Mandy will be starring in a new musical called Paradise Found, produced by Hal Prince and directed by Hal Prince and Susan Stroman. It will open in London at the Menier Chocolate Factory this spring for a seven week run. It is supposed to come to Broadway in the Fall, so let's keep our fingers crossed that it does! Paradise Found is based on a novel by Joseph Roth entitled Tale of the 1002nd Night. The book (a script or story for a play) is by Richard Nelson, lyrics by Ellen Fitzhugh and music is by Johann Strauss II and Jonathan Tunick.
