Absolutely brilliant performance! If you love classical music and Franz Liszt, you have to go see it. Hershey Felter "becomes" Franz Liszt and tells his life story as he lived it, playing all the beautiful music on a gorgeous Steinway grand...continued

It was so entertaining and educational. Hershey Felder is an amazing artist, how he focuses on his acting and musical performance is beyond me - but he does. The way he weaves together the music, the history, and the emotional tone is bordering...continued

While Hershey Felder put forth a great effort, the show was too long (approximately two and a half hours without an intermission) and not well edited. Believe it or not, the show did not have much of Liszt's beautiful music, but a lot of history...continued

It was outstanding. Hershey Felder always does an amazing job as a story teller, pianist and showman. We try not to miss any of his productions. Thanks to Laguna Playhouse for bringing his work to all of us. Kudos to Hershey Felder for another...continued

2 1/2 hours without intermission.
It must have been a dress rehearsal, because it went on and on.
Some very interesting points, but... too many.
There is room for at least two plays. Two much Wagner not enough Liszt.
Not enough music, definitely...continued

I was disappointed with the tickets. Ordinarily Row B, Seats 1 & 3 would have been terrific seats but this play was a one-man show with a grand piano in the middle of the stage. The actor spent a lot of time on the left side sitting behind the...continued

Hershey felder's portrayal of liszt is excellent - the performance is charming, moving, dramatic, sad, funny and the piano is extraordinary.

This is my 4th Hershey Felder play and I always am amazed at his over sized talent. You will be entertained by his great story telling of Franz Liszt life and piano accompaniment to the story. I was not that familiar with all the musical...continued

I enjoyed the presentation...The dialogue was clever. I learned a lot about the composer. Clever presentation; great accent and set. I would have preferred to hear some of Liszt's other more exciting pieces. I felt the music selected was too much...continued

I thought Hershey Felder was amazing and loved the story. However, I was very disappointed in the music he played. I wanted to hear the known music of Franz Lizst - instead, he played music that was not known. Also, it was very hard to hear him...continued

We found this disappointing. There was not enough humor. There was not enough of the bright, virtuosic music of Liszt. It was slow and lacking in energy. It was a downer.

If you ever get a chance to see Hershey Felder, go! This is the third time I have seen him and again thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a one man show and he plays a great historical character and plays the piano all the while you are engrossed in this...continued
