Actor and pianist Hershey Felder will present the New York premiere of his solo show Our Great Tchaikovsky as a one-night-only benefit for Lyric Chamber Music Society of New York. The play will be performed on Monday, October 15, at 7:30pm, at 59E59 Theaters.

The world premiere of Our Great Tchaikovsky took place at San Diego Repertory Theatre in 2017. Directed by Trevor Hay, Felder's piece features music by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, and explores the mystery surrounding some of the greatest music ever written.

Our Great Tchaikovsky will be performed on the set of Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin, currently running at 59E59 Theatres, with sound design by Erik Carstensen and projections by Christopher Ash.
