Town Crier Report
Following “Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin: Live from Florence,” which streamed worldwide in May, TheatreWorks Silicon Valley is teaming with Felder again.
A livestreamed performance of “Hershey Felder: Beethoven,” based on the original stage direction by Joel Zwick, is set for 5 p.m. Sunday. Streamed from Italy, Felder will bring Ludwig van Beethoven to life through the eyes of a Viennese doctor who spent his boyhood by Beethoven’s side.
Those who buy tickets can watch “Beethoven” live online or view a recorded performance in the 72 hours that follow.
Felder is a performer, playwright and director who has starred in solo shows as Claude Debussy, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, George Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Fryderyk Chopin and Leonard Bernstein. In this show, he embodies Beethoven and Dr. Gerhard von Breuning, who as a boy spent time by the composer’s side and cared for him in the last years of his life. The performance features some of Beethoven’s greatest works, including “Moonlight Sonata,” “Ninth Symphony” and the “Emperor Concerto.”
Tickets are $55 per household. For tickets and more information, call 463-1960 or visit theatreworks.org.
