From uproarious comedies like The Odd Couple to hard-hitting dramas like The China Syndrome, Jack Lemmon was one of the most versatile actors of his generation. Now, his distinctive voice returns to the stage as son Chris Lemmon portrays his father in a new solo show exploring his unlikely journey from Newton, Mass. to becoming the first actor ever to win the Oscar for both Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor. Trained in classical piano, Chris Lemmon's music-filled performance is a celebration of one of Hollywood's greatest legends, and an exploration of a fascinating relationship between father and son. The show is written and directed by Hershey Felder, whose one man productions -- including George Gershwin Alone, Maestro Bernstein and last season's smash hit Mona Golabek in The Pianist of Willesden Lane -- have played to great acclaim worldwide.

White Noise was very good and certainly will do well on Broadway when it gets there. That said, it did not blow me away. The story broke no new ground and parts of the plot line were a bit hackneyed. The performances were great though, and made up for any deficiencies in the story. Overall it was a good way to spend an evening, even though the play will keep you uncomfortable throughout and even make it difficult to clap for some of the performers - they are that believable in their roles.

White Noise pulls back the curtain at a major record label where a top-selling producer stirs up an explosive cocktail of shock, spin and a splash of controversy to package talented artists into blockbuster stars.
Steadily baited by the lure of mainstream fame and power, two diametrically opposed groups - “White Noise”, an irresistible pop band that churns out catchy tunes of hateful, coded rhetoric, and “Bloodbrothas”, the hip-hop-turned-gangsta-rap duo — each willing to compromise anything for success, collide with consequence at the top of the charts.
Directed and choreographed by by Broadway sensation Sergio Trujillo (The Addams Family, Memphis, Jersey Boys, Next to Normal, Guys and Dolls, All Shook Up) and set in today’s music industry, White Noise is a timely and cautionary tale challenging conventional notions of free speech, media and the power of pop culture.
