Even for the energetic and versatile Hershey Felder — pianist, actor, playwright, composer and producer — the time warp of his next two world premieres may be considered a bit of a stretch.
Hershey Felder is a prolific performer, writer and composer, but he is setting a new personal record with world premieres of two plays at different Los Angeles venues.
"I want to take viewers through three different generations, to meet three of the greatest music-makers -- actually musical inventors -- who ever lived," says Felder. "What connects these composers, thematically, is the price that each paid in order to create his work."
"George Gershwin Alone," the only one-man show ever permitted by the heirs of the composer for the commercial stage, began in the shadow of the Holocaust.
Actor-composer Hershey Felder, 29, has a way with politicians.
