Theater Review: “Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin”

“Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin” runs through January 7, 2018 at San Diego Repertory’s Lyceum Theatre, 79 Horton Plaza, Downtown.

His songs form a great part of the “Great American Songbook.” Lacking music training, he said he could only play in F-sharp, on the black keys – because “they stick out, so it’s easier.” George Gershwin called him “the greatest songwriter who ever lived.” 

Jerome Kern may have said it best: “Irving Berlin has no place in American music – he is American music.”
