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

This is the kind of play that gives Theater a bad name and keeps younger audiences away. The writing was cliche driven, often inane and insulting and the acting, if you call shouting or reciting lines acting, was on the lowest possible level. I certainly did not enjoy spending 90 minutes with this bland, selfish group of four. If there was an intermission, my wife and I would have gladly left.
