Patinkin to star in ‘Compulsion’

Show to bow at Yale Repertory Theater

Mandy Patinkin will star in the world premiere of Rinne Groff’s “Compulsion,” which will bow at Yale Repertory Theater in New Haven in late January, helmed by Public Theater a.d. Oskar Eustis.

Patinkin’s previous Broadway role was in the 2000 musical “The Wild Party,” a Public Theater co-production. He played Prospero in “The Tempest” last year at Off Broadway’s Classic Stage Company and has performed on concert stages in Gotham and nationwide, most recently in tandem with his “Evita” co-star, Patti LuPone.

In Groff’s new play, Patinkin will play Sid Silver, a translator obsessed with bringing Anne Frank’s story to an American audience. “Compulsion” runs Jan. 29-Feb. 28 at the Rep before playing at Berkeley Repertory Theater and the Public. Dates and casts for those productions have not yet been announced.

Eustis also staged Groff’s “The Ruby Sunrise” at Trinity Repertory Company in Providence and later at the Public.
