ENCORE VIEWING: Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin

May 14 - 17


This Encore Viewing will be available on-demand starting on Thursday, May 14 at 6:00pm PDT through Sunday, May 17 at 9:00pm PDT. 


Hershey Felder, internationally acclaimed for bringing to life such composers as Debussy, Tchaikovsky, Gershwin, Beethoven, Chopin, and Bernstein, brings to life the inspiring story of “America’s Composer” Irving Berlin. Fleeing the anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia, capturing the rhythms of the Lower East Side, and eventually enchanting the entire world, Berlin epitomized the American dream. Featuring some of Berlin’s most popular and enduring songs from "God Bless America,” “There’s No Business Like Show Business,” “Blue Skies,” to "White Christmas” and beyond, Felder’s signature creation of character and musical performance weaves a narrative around Berlin’s 101 year lifespan including his long and heartening relationship with his wife, battles against anti-Semitism and, of course, his storied music. 

David C. Nichols of The Los Angeles Times wrote “that indefatigable purveyor of composers, Hershey Felder, applies his singular blend of musical biography, character study and piano virtuosity toward the iconic songwriter. The empathy, showmanship and craft on tap may just be the best match of historical figure and performing artist yet.” Chris Jones writing in The Chicago Tribune raved “Felder is the impresario whose relationship with audiences is long-standing, intimate and mutually adoring. Felder does his good guy proud.”
