Hershey Felder as Leonard Bernstein in
Final West Coast Engagement
Leonard Bernstein was a conductor, pianist, author, educator, librettist, television star and the composer of three symphonies, iconic film scores and the American musical classics West Side Story, Candide, On the Town and Wonderful Town, among others. He pushed boundaries to become the world’s first serious musical media superstar and changed the face of music. In his inimitable style, Hershey Felder brings Bernstein to life through first-person narratives combined with his compositions, as well as music by Beethoven, Mahler and more, drawing audiences deeply into the maestro’s fascinating life.
