Our Great Tchaikovsky, The Flats and Chagall Fantasies

The Chagall Exhibit at LACMA.

Social City News

Actor and pianist Hershey Felder returned to Beverly Hills as “The Great Tchaikovsky,” playing to a packed audience at the Wallis Theater. Felder actually became Tchaikovsky in appearance, voice and mannerisms. We were transported back to 19th Century Russia, and drawn into the music, politics and love life of one of the world’s most beloved composers.

The production, directed by Trevor Hay, was sheer magic, and I sent notes to all my readers not to miss it. Unfortunately, the run is now over and I heard it was completely sold out. However, Felder will return to the Wallace in July 2018 as Beethoven. Do not miss it. This charming chameleon can become anyone from George Gershwin to Chopin. Felder is a legend in his own time.

Popular PR pro, Roger Neal, invited us to the opening of one of L.A.’s hottest new restaurants, The Flats, on Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills. Executive Chef Kyle Schutte, who won the Food Network’s Cutthroat Kitchen in 2014 without spending any money, is the restaurant’s co-owner. Everything is made in house from humane and sustainable sources.

Among those who attended the soiree were actress Carolyn Hennesy (“General Hospital”), Josh Henderson (“Dallas”), and comedian Judy Tenuta. Co-owners Lisa Long and Pete Capella (The Bar Guru) invite you to try this exciting eating experience. Tell them you read about it in Century City-Westwood News.

And last, but not least, The L.A. County Museum of Art is presenting Chagall: Fantasies for the Stage. It’s the first exhibit to spotlight the role that music and dance played in Chagall’s career. The exhibit comprises 145 objects, 4l vibrant costumes, and 100 sketches. It runs through January 2018 at the Resnick Pavilion. CEO Wallace Annenberg said of the exhibit, “Chagall’s work engages the visual and the performing arts and reaches the disciplines of art, music, theater, dance and even fashion design.
