Manhattan’s Town Hall presents Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin June 6 at 8 PM. The new play with music is written and performed by actor and musician Hershey Felder, with direction by Trevor Hay.
The Town Hall engagement marks the New York premiere of the show, which has been staged in Los Angeles, Chicago and Boston.
“I am thrilled to return to Town Hall,” said Felder in an earlier press statement. “[It is] a stage replete with history - to perform the role of Irving Berlin on the same stage where I last brought Maestro Leonard Bernstein to life. To be able to create the character of Irving Berlin - America's most beloved composer, in his home town - around the corner from his beloved Music Box theatre, in a musical story that reminds us all of this incredible country, and the remarkable people who built it, is truly an honor.”
Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin features scenic design by Felder, lighting design by Richard Norwood, projection design by Christopher Ash and Lawrence Siefert, and sound design/production management by Erik Carstensen. The show is produced by Eva Price, Samantha F. Voxakis and Karen Racanelli.
Tickets are on sale at The Town Hall Box Office, located at 123 West 43rd Street, online at Ticketmaster.com, and by calling (800) 982-2787.
