Do not go to this theater. During the summer they hold events and close the parking lot for a festival next door. A walk of 3/4 miles may be necessary.

So many great places to eat nearby, but Laguna is pricey, so plan accordingly.

I have attended hundreds of events, this one left me speechless. The man becomes the character and leaves you with an impression you will never forget.

Quotes & Highlights

“In his finest moments, (Felder)  carries a rapt audience along on a wave of true, powerful, and wordless passion.” —Boston Globe


Hershey Felder as Monsieur Chopin

The Music of Frédéric Chopin

Text by Hershey Felder

Directed by Joel Zwick

Monsieur Chopin will teach a piano lesson that actually took place on March 4, 1848, just days after the February 1848 revolution. As the piano lesson unfolds, he reveals secrets about the art of the piano and composition, as well as secrets about himself.

Hershey Felder began the creation of Monsieur Chopin, prior to that of George Gershwin Alone. An actor and Steinway Concert Artist and former Scholar in Residence at Harvard University’s Department of Music as well as composer, Felder comes from a traditionally classical musical and theatrical background. His studies on Chopin have taken him across the world and include studying the composer’s history, period history, manuscripts and living in Chopin’s still existing residences. Included in the creative process, is a scholarly relationship with the United States’ foremost author and professor of Chopin Studies, Jeffrey Kallberg, a professor of music and chairman of the music department at the University of Pennsylvania.
