Felder Channels Russian Composer

Master pianist and storyteller Hershey Felder embodies the life and music of Russian composer Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky at Laguna Playhouse beginning Sunday, March 5.

Tchaikovsky is best known for his classical ballets, particularly Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty and The Nutcracker. He died at age 53 in circumstances that remain a mystery today.

“Our Great Tschaikovsky” is written by Felder and directed by Trevor Hay. “This might be the most powerful piece of work that Hershey and Trevor have ever brought to the Playhouse,” Artistic Director Ann E. Wareham said in a statement. “Tchaikovsky’s story is as relevant and important today as it was in the 1800s,” she said.

The show will run through Sunday, March 26, at the Laguna Playhouse, 606 Laguna Canyon Road. Tickets range from $60 – $75 and can be purchased online at or at 949 497-2787.






Play Ponders Life’s Meaning

In the play, Ben Farrow performs as Joel, who discovers one of the world’s great relics in his grandmother’s attic in a solo comedy about finally getting all that we want – and still feeling unfulfilled.
