Hershey Felder’s one-man show wonderfully blends the music of Tchaikovsky with his life story to create a strong biography.
In a programme change at The Other Palace, award-winning actor and pianist Hershey Felder presents the UK premiere of Our Great Tchaikovsky, replacing the previously announced double bill of his musical plays about two other composers: Irving Berlin and Maestro Leonard Bernstein.
In a non-stop performance of virtuoso theatre, The Pianist of Willesden Lane sees Mona Golabek, an accomplished American concert pianist, pay the most remarkable of tributes to her late mother Lisa Jura.
The second run of The Pianist of Willesden Lane is now booking until 22 October 2016. It has also been confirmed that a gala performance in aid of World Jewish Relief will take place on 13 September. Originally scheduled to end on 16 October, an additional six performances have been added to the run of Hershey Felder’s production due to popular demand.
London’s St James’ Theatre today announces its spring 2016 season, comprising: the UK premiere of critically acclaimed Blitz-set play with music The Pianist of Willesden Lane, the world premiere of explosive new musical Miss Atomic Bomb and the first London revival for over 25 years of Charlotte Keatley’s award-winning debut play My Mother Said I Never Should.
