There's a great little bistro a few blocks up Shattuck, called Liaisons Bistro that is sensitive to theatre times and also evidently gives a 15% discount to theatregoers without being asked. The food is excellent and the prices are great.

A stunning performance! I was absolutely convinced that I was watching Leonard Bernstein. I liked the story-telling the best, the singing not quite so much. But overall excellent. It could have used an intermission, however.

Remarkably entertaining and fascinating portrait of Maestro Bernstein. Musically and theatrically perfect, though a preview. Highly recommended!

A fantastic production. Hershey Felder is a multi talented musician and actor. I had seen him several years ago in his one-man show on George Gershwin. It was excellent and this is just as good. This one act 90+ minutes show never lags and always...continued
