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

Acclaimed actress, producer, writer and Geffen Playhouse alum Rita Wilson is returning to the theater – this time to sing. For one night only, the award-winning stage and screen star will perform songs from her debut Decca Records solo album AM/FM, featuring iconic hits from the '60s and '70s ranging from classic love songs to folk-rock tunes. Rita Wilson AM/FM in Concert will benefit both the Geffen Playhouse and The Actors Fund, a national human services organization that helps all professionals in performing arts and entertainment, and will be followed by a postshow wine and dessert reception.
Wilson’s new album AM/FM is a compilation of her take on her favorite songs from childhood – from the AM radio recordings she first experienced in the back seat of her parents’ car to the FM singer-songwriter jams she sung while at the wheel herself – and features guest artists Chris Cornell, Sheryl Crow, Jimmy Webb, Jackson Browne and Faith Hill, among others.
