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

First Rate. All aspects of the production were excellent. The play has been referred in the press as a "lighter" play (as compared to "August: Osage County") and as a comedy, and although there are certainly lots of laughs, I perceived this play as more of a drama, and a bittersweet one. As in AOC, the characters are highly ideosyncratic and somewhat disfunctional, lone anti-social individuals who consciously cut ties to friends and family. Superior Donuts offers hope for recovery, but still leaves the audience with a gentle sadness at opportunity lost.
Written by Tracy Letts
Directed by Randall Arney

Letts was also named as one of Time’s Best of 2003.
