Photo Flash: First Look at Westport Country Playhouse's HERSHEY FELDER AS IRVING BERLIN

Westport Country Playhouse, in association with Hershey Felder Presents, stages a musical tribute to Irving Berlin, one of the most successful songwriters of the 20th Century, with "Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin," from July 16 - August 3. The show celebrates composer Irving Berlin and reveals the inspiration for Berlin's countless hit songs, including "Blue Skies," "There's No Business Like Show Business," "White Christmas," and more. Irving Berlin's uplifting immigrant story, from Czarist Russia to New York's Lower East Side to Broadway, epitomizes the American Dream. The production's music and lyrics are by Irving Berlin, book by Hershey Felder, and direction by Trevor Hay.

Hershey Felder, the award-winning actor-pianist-playwright who portrays Irving Berlin, has played over 5,000 performances of his self-created solo productions at some of the world's most prestigious theaters and has broken box office records consistently. In addition to "Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin," his shows include "George Gershwin Alone" (including Broadway and the West End), "Monsieur Chopin," "Beethoven," "Maestro: Leonard Bernstein," "Franz Liszt in Musik," "Lincoln: An American Story," "Our Great Tchaikovsky," and "A Paris Love Story." Felder is the adaptor, director, and designer for the internationally performed play-with-music "The Pianist of Willesden Lane" with Steinway artist Mona Golabek which was presented at Westport Country Playhouse in 2017 and 2018. He has been a scholar-in-residence at Harvard University's Department of Music and is married to Kim Campbell, the first female Prime Minister of Canada.
