Hershey Felder as George Gershwin Alone
That Fascinating & Embraceable Show is Back!
Internationally acclaimed actor, playwright and Steinway concert artist, Hershey Felder creates an exquisitely scripted and uniquely American musical theatre experience with a stunning portrayal of George Gershwin. Drawn from extensive research into the correspondence, life and music of America’s musical legend, the show incorporates Gershwin’s best-known songs, from “The Man I Love” and “Someone to Watch Over Me,” through passages and songs from An American in Paris and Porgy and Bess, to a complete performance of “Rhapsody in Blue.”
Hershey Felder brings to life the spirit and talent of the legendary composer and pianist. He leads audiences through the fascinating rhythms of Gershwin’s legendary songbook, while telling the tale of the historic composer's early background, artistic genius and tragically short life. Audiences will stand and cheer this production, which provides the depth of insight of a biographical theatre piece combined with the musical skill of a concert-level piano performance.
