There are always a few acts at the XRIJF that I’ve never heard of before the festival, but I can’t stop talking about after I’ve seen them. Pianist Matt Herskowitz is now on that list.

I'm now in rehearsals for my musical theatre show, Bella: the Colour of Love, about the life of Bella Chagall, muse, manager, publicist and great love of famed artist Marc Chagall. We start our 3-week run at the Harold Greene theatre in Toronto on October 15th, going till November 3rd. I've been writing new music up until today, but I think I've finally got it! Starring Theresa Tova, and directed by famed choreographer Danny Grossman. Here's a link for info, dates and tickets: http://www.hgjewishtheatre.com/201415_Bella.html
I've added a little promotional video from Live On Stage on the Videos page, who is representing me for bookings for their 2014-15 season - short and sweet!
