Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin

Lyrics & music by Irving Berlin
Book by Hershey Felder
Directed by Trevor Hay
Special presentation · Peet's Theatre
April 4–May 7, 2017

Running time: 1 hour and 45 minutes, no intermission

The musical story of an immigrant boy who gave a country its voice.

From Czarist Russia to New York’s Lower East Side, and then throughout the world, Irving Berlin’s life and music epitomizes the American Dream, and his songs capture his patriotic vision of our country. Experience the stories behind this songwriter’s most popular and enduring work, including “God Bless America,” “There’s No Business Like Show Business,” “White Christmas,” and more. Pianist and actor Hershey Felder’s signature creation of character and musical performance will astonish, move, and delight. “It will put a tear in your eye and a song in your heart,”—San Jose Mercury News.

An Octoroon

By Branden Jacobs-Jenkins
Directed by Eric Ting
Peet's Theatre · June 23 – July 23, 2017
West Coast premiere

Playwright and 2016 MacArthur Fellow Branden Jacobs-Jenkins won the Obie Award for his radical, incendiary, and subversively funny riff on Dion Boucicault’s once-popular 1859 mustache-twirling melodrama. A spectacular collision of the antebellum South and 21st-century cultural politics, An Octoroon is “This decade’s most eloquent theatrical statement on race in America today,” says the New York Times.
