Hershey Felder: A Paris Love Story
The mesmerizing music lures its listeners into a state of relaxed contemplation of the chalk-drawn scenes of the City of Lights that splash one by one on the projected, stage-filling blackboard behind him. At the piano, we imagine for a moment that the great French composer whose music gave voice to the impressionistic artistic movement of his period – Claude Debussy – is actually in our presence as his fingers glide over the keyboard and his body sways with an emotional pull hypnotic to watch. But we actually know that the man before us is the incomparable Hershey Felder, the now-darling of TheatreWorks Silicon Valley and Bay Area audiences who returns for the fourth straight year yet again to portray another of the world’s greatest composers – this time of Claude Debussy in the world premiere of his created and solo-performed Hershey Felder: A Paris Love Story.
