Schedule of events
- February 7: Before Fiddler - Decades before the beloved musical Fiddler on the Roof first delighted worldwide audiences, there was Sholem Aleichem and his beloved character of ‘Tevye the Milkman.’ When he was only 24 years old, Aleichem published his first story, Tsvey Shteyner (“Two Stones”), and by 1890, he had become a central figure in Yiddish literature. Aleichem was known as the “Jewish Mark Twain” for his similar writing style and pen name usage. Felder will play Sholem Aleichem himself – giving audiences the true story of what happened ‘Before Fiddler.’
- March 14: Puccini - In the tradition of the “one man composer shows” adding operatic voices when called for, Puccini is the story of the great composer’s deliciously scandalous life, his female characters, and how the real women in his life affected the women he created on stage. Filmed live on location in the places where these events and these compositions and premieres actually took place, Puccini will include music from La Bohème, Tosca, Turandot, and more.
- May 16: Anna & Sergei - Taking place as a memory play in the house in which the Russian Rachmaninoff died in Beverly Hills, this is the story of a very strange meeting Between Rachmaninoff and Anna Anderson, the woman who claimed to be the sole surviving member of the Romanov Dynasty, the Princess Anastasia. The production features Rachmaninoff’s most beloved melodies and music.
