Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin is the musical story of an immigrant boy who gave a country its voice. Reflecting upon Berlin's humble beginnings as the child of immigrants to his rise as one of America's iconic songwriters, the production features several of the composer’s most recognizable songs, including "Alexander's Ragtime Band," "Always," "Blue Skies," "God Bless America," "Puttin' on the Ritz," "There's No Business like Show Business," and "White Christmas."
“Richly entertaining and ultimately touching. A remarkable portrait. The empathy, showmanship and craft on tap may just be the best match of historical figure and performing artist yet.” –The Los Angeles Times (Critic’s Pick)
“Felder is an exquisite singer and a virtuosic pianist, and his love for Berlin’s music fills the theatre.” –The New Yorker
Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin is produced by Eva Price, Samantha F. Voxakis, Karen Racanelli, and Erik Carstensen.
