The “Rhapsody” of Live Musical Theater at Home
Normally I arrange for a live “indoor” theater event for the holiday season, but it looks like live indoor theater is months to a year away. However, here is an opportunity for you (and others in your household) to see a marvelous actor-musician, Hershey Felder, LIVE ONLINE on September 13th at 8:00 p.m. in the comfort of your own home … at a 1980s NYC orchestra ticket price. The show will also be available on demand for a week after the live performance if you want to see it again (or at a later date).
George Gershwin Alone tells the story of America’s great composer, who with the groundbreaking “A Rhapsody in Blue,” made a “Lady out of Jazz.” The show incorporates the composer’s best-known songs from “The Man I Love” and “Someone to Watch Over Me,” through the hits of An American In Paris and Porgy and Bess, to a complete performance of Rhapsody In Blue. As the only actor-musician to create the role of George Gershwin on the stage, and with over three-thousand performances, from California to Broadway to London’s West End, for the first time, Hershey Felder will bring George Gershwin to life on the stage of one of Europe’s oldest and most famous theatres. We will bring the show to you LIVE from Florence, Italy. For more information about the show and previous reviews, click here.
We saw Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin at the Westport Playhouse in Spring 2019 and enjoyed it so much that we brought friends with us to see his performance again. The upcoming show of his is one that we have been hoping he would bring to a theater in this area. At this time devoid of “normal” in-person theater, a live performance online is the best and a most welcome alternative.
Join me in purchasing your ticket for what is sure to be an enjoyable LIVE theater event. After clicking “ticket” in this email, follow the “Buy Tickets Here” prompts in the (HFP/Eventbrite) website. The cost is $55 for your home access for the livestream and subsequent limited time on demand availability. Your ticket link will be sent to you a couple of days before the performance via email. For more information about how to watch the show, click here and go to “How to Watch.”
Though we cannot be together in person to watch this masterful performer, we can be together in spirit watching it and subsequently share our enjoyment of the performance. If you have any questions, please contact Pamela Crum via email.
