If you haven't seen the first incarnation of this particular piece, this one is actually great, and we recommend this one. He's a truly great pianist and stage presence. On the other hand, having seen and loved ALL of Mr. Feldman's many recent shows (and productions) in SoCal - including the earlier one on Lincoln's death, I have to emphatically say that most of the changes to this one just sucked out all of the emotion for me. When I saw the "old" version I was actually shocked to find myself crying freely at the end, whereas this one was merely informative and pleasant. I am not surprised he removed the large orchestra - and that wasn't the problem for me. But removing the first-person narrator eviscerated it, in my opinion.
