Acclaimed all-around entertainer Hershey Felder -- who's wowed audiences and critics alike with his one-man theatrical productions based on the lives and music of George Gershwin and Leonard Bernstein -- brings the world premiere of his latest to the Geffen. Lincoln's Piano weaves the music of Stephen Foster, American hymns and more with Felder's own skillful storytelling to shine a new light on the artistry, politics and personalities that collided the fateful night of April 14, 1865 at Ford's Theatre. An actor, concert-level pianist, playwright, composer, producer and director, Felder's other successful stage projects include solo shows on Beethoven, Liszt and Chopin. Learn More

Next Fall, which has already won widespread critical acclaim (nominations for the 2010 Tony Award for Best Play, Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play, Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Broadway Play) makes its West Coast debut with the original New York director. Adam and Luke seem like a case of opposites attract – Adam is older, neurotic and an atheist; Luke is impulsive, a struggling actor and a devout Christian. After Luke is involved in a critical accident, family and friends descend upon the couple and these longtime differences collide, forcing opposing views on faith and family into a stand-off. As timely as it is touching, this must-see play exposes the fundamental truth that we love people both because of – and in spite of – who they are.
