Back From Broadway...A Musical Experience, written by Hershey Felder and James Barbour and featuring selections from classic musicals like Carousel, Fiddler on the Roof, Man of La Mancha and Camelot, arrives back near Broadway June 17 for a one night only Actors Fund benefit performance at Lincoln Center. TV director Joel Zwick, who also helmed Felder's Gershwin Alone, directs Back to Broadway, which enjoyed successful runs in Los Angeles and Florida in December and January. Barbour and Felder had their troubles and triumphs on Broadway in 2001. Barbour played the dark and brooding Rochester in Jane Eyre, while pianist Felder portrayed the great George Gershwin in Gershwin Alone; both shows closed prematurely. In their new show, however, they're Back From Broadway and they want to tell the world about what it takes to create, nourish and perform on the Great White Way.
Barbour performed on Broadway as the Beast in Beauty and the Beast (a role he also played in Los Angeles) and Billy Bigelow in Carousel. Other credits include The Gift at the Tiffany, Dennis DeYoung's Hunchback of Notre Dame and Enter the Guardsman. Felder is a composer, actor, producer and pianist.
