Running time: approximately 2 hours

Following up the successful livestreams of Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin and George Gershwin Alone, acclaimed performer Hershey Felder will present his one-man show, Hershey Felder as Claude Debussy in A Paris Love Story, also streamed live! As with his previous livestream performances, this production will benefit national U.S. theatres and arts organizations.

Piano virtuoso and actor Hershey Felder takes us on a very personal journey through the beloved city of Paris through the music of Claude Debussy (“Clair de Lune,” Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune…) and how this music shaped a whole new world of color in sound. This new world of “musical impressionism” gave us the beginnings of what we have come to know as “Movie Music.”
