Hershey Felder in Anna & Sergei
A new play featuring the music of Sergei Rachmaninoff
In this World Premiere by Hershey Felder (George Gershwin Alone, Irving Berlin, Maestro Bernstein, Our Great Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, Monsieur Chopin…), Hershey will take on a little known story about the great Russian Pianist and Composer Sergei Rachmaninoff. Set at the Garden City Hotel in Long Island, New York, this is the story of the great composer crossing paths with someone he believed to be a descendent of Czar Nicholas II. Living in America and longing for his familiar Russian roots and home, Sergei Rachmaninoff allowed himself to be taken on a journey that few would ever believe.
In this new play with music, Hershey Felder will play musical characters, but in a way he has never done before. Join us for a trip back in time to 1928 New York, for something shockingly different and new as we explore the worlds of Anna and Sergei.
