Beethoven, As I Knew Him - 2008 - San Diego, CA (Regional)

Hershey Felder brought Old Globe audiences to their feet last season with his portrayal of American master George Gershwin. His limited engagement as Monsieur Chopin was an instant sell-out. Now, because of the overwhelming reception he was given by San Diego audiences during his last visit, he is premiering his next tour-de-force on The Old Globe stage. With his one-of-a-kind style and virtuoso talent as a pianist and actor, Hershey Felder will bring to life one of the greatest composers of all time, the immortal Ludwig van Beethoven. You’ll never be closer to the music or to the genius who gave us these masterpieces than you will be at this must-see theatrical event!

Debussy (1862-1918) is still known best as well as a seminal force in the music of the early 20th Century having developed a highly original system of harmony and musical structure that expressed in many respects the ideals to which the Impressionist painters and writers of his time aspired. Felder truly takes his audience on a journey through his own early walks down the streets of the composer's life in Paris. Thus, we are treated to the personal observations of both men who describe the City of Light's wondrously romantic settings from The Eiffel Tower, The Louvre, Notre Dame and its Point Zero, to a walk through The Tuileries Garden, down the Champs Elysees to the Arc de Triumph, and on to the composer's home near the Bois de Boulogne.

From award-winning solo artist and writer of the internationally acclaimed Jamaica Farewell, comes Debra Ehrhardt's new play, Cock Tales: Shame on Me!  The 80-minute show is based on true stories of up close and personal encounters with those very complicated members of the opposite sex. Ms Ehrhardt's colorful history of a lifetime of encounters with a world full of testosterone-fueled gentlemen--and not-so-gentle-men-has given her plenty of "source material" from which to create a memorable evening of theater.  From her early years as a young girl raised in a religious family, through her sexual awakening as a young adult, she takes us on a bumpy ride over a funny, sexy and emotionally rocky road.
