Hershey Felder as Franz Liszt in RockStar!

If you’re not familiar with the name Hershey Felder, don’t worry, this blurb has nothing to do with fetish porn. Rather, the Laguna Playhouse features the Canadian actor/musician/playwright (with the unsettling name), who uses his exceptional talents to showcase both music and theater in a tribute to famed 19th century Hungarian composer Franz Liszt. Referred to as the "piano rockstar" of the era, Liszt came from a movement known as the German New School. In simple terms, the age following Beethoven’s death. You’ve gotta admire Felder’s ardent ambition—a guy who created an acclaimed one-man show about the life of George Gershwin, now tackling mercurial Hungarian pianists, and doing so with dramatic perfection. He's quite the renaissance man.
