Felder returns to Cleveland as famed composer in 'Maestro'

Published:

Cleveland Play House presents a live summer production of Hershey Felder in "Maestro: Leonard Bernstein," in the Allen Theatre at PlayhouseSquare.

Felder has previously awed Cleveland audiences with his creations of "Beethoven As I Knew Him," "Monsieur Chopin," "George Gershwin Alone," and "The Great American Songbook."

"Maestro: Leonard Bernstein," a play with music, will run in the Allen Theatre at PlayhouseSquare through Aug. 4. Tickets are $39 to $69, and are available by calling 216-241-6000 or online at www.clevelandplayhouse.com. Tickets for anyone under age 30 are $30 and students under 24 are $15 each.

"Hershey Felder has been one of the most popular performers on our stage," says Cleveland Play House Managing Director Kevin Moore. "It's a pleasure to welcome him back as one of America's greatest musical talents."

With a story spanning the entire 20th century, Leonard Bernstein ("West Side Story," "Candide") is one of America's greatest musical artists. During his long career, Bernstein broke through every artistic ceiling to become the world's musical ambassador. Felder combines first-person narrative with the music of Mr. Bernstein and the artists who inspired him.

The Allen Theatre at PlayhouseSquare is at 1407 Euclid Ave. in Cleveland.
