I enjoyed the presentation...The dialogue was clever. I learned a lot about the composer. Clever presentation; great accent and set. I would have preferred to hear some of Liszt's other more exciting pieces. I felt the music selected was too much...continued

I thought Hershey Felder was amazing and loved the story. However, I was very disappointed in the music he played. I wanted to hear the known music of Franz Lizst - instead, he played music that was not known. Also, it was very hard to hear him...continued

If you ever get a chance to see Hershey Felder, go! This is the third time I have seen him and again thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a one man show and he plays a great historical character and plays the piano all the while you are engrossed in this...continued

Hershey Felder didn't disappoint, not nearly as long as described. Too bad more people don't get to experience his genius. I don't think that you have to be a lover of classical music to get a lot out of his productions. Although maybe not a...continued

We have been to all of the Hershey Felder shows and loved them, but this show was a bomb, the music was awful except for one piece.

As usual, staff was helpful and friendly. My seating was perfect as well. Unfortunatley, this production, in my opinion, did not meet up to the standards set by earlier Felder performances . Given Hershey's talent, more Liszt music would have...continued

I have never been a fan of Liszt's music and was hoping to fall in love with his piano music, however, that was not the case. I also was very tired from putting on a music workshop earlier in the day so I fell asleep during Mr. Felders gorgeous...continued

Compared to what I had heard of earlier of Hershey Felder's performances I was not too thrilled with what I saw.

Felder is terrific but the dialogue was way to much of the experience and the piano work too little. He spends to much time educating the audience and too little entertaining them.

Not his best by a long shot!

Felder did a good job as usual He kept my interest throughout the
performance and brought out many things in Liszt's life I wasn't aware of.

Goldstar came through with good prices and seats.
This is the 3rd Hershey Felder production for me, all of which I left the theater exhilarated. This time not so.
Piano sections were wonderful.

The stage was unnecessarily too dark (for...continued

Previously we saw Mr.Felder as Shopen. It was a very dark and depressing performance and we all LOVED it.
This time it was a dark and depressing story line and we didn't love it.
We loved Mr. Felder performance as a pianist, that goes without...continued
