Hershey Felder Our Great Tchaikovsky

star 1star 2star 3star 3.5

Until October 22, 2017

Known for his soul-stirring symphonies and sonatas, Tchaikovsky has left an indelible mark on the landscape of classical music history. It is surprising therefore, that little is known of his personal life. The West End debut of Hershey Felder's explores this side of the closeted gay composer's works and life in Our Great Tchaikovsky at London's The Other Palace Theatre for a strictly limited 4-week run this Autumn.

Hershey Felder as Maestro Leonard Bernstein

Following his hugely successful London show last year at the Other Palace, The Pianist of Willesden Lane, American singer and perfomer Hershey Felder returns in two shows playing iconic composers Irving Berlin and Leonard Bernstein. Last year saw Felder named in Time Magazine as one of their top ten theatre artists for 2016.

Manhattan Parisienne

Until October 21, 2017

Alain Boublil presents his new play, Manhattan Parisienne to The Other Palace. Two struggling artists, a French actress/singer and a musician, form a friendship that will take them on a surreal journey through New York.

Big Fish
