Pianist and singer Hershey Felder is probably best known for bringing the works of George Gershwin to a new generation with his one man show, “George Gershwin ALONE.” Now he’s back with a new project at the Geffen, this time memorializing the music of Irving Berlin. Felder joins Larry to talk about the new show and the inspiration it drew from “America’s Composer.” From the depths of anti-Semitism in Czarist Russia, to New York’s Lower East Side, Berlin’s story epitomizes the American dream and Felder’s show honors his legacy with some of the composer’s most popular and enduring songs from “God Bless America,” to “White Christmas” and beyond.


Hershey Felder, creator and star of “Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin,” which runs through December 21st at the Geffen Playhouse.
