"Recorded live at a bar and grill in Montreal last year, the Herskowitz CD is another jazz-meets-classical effort, but unlike some, this one works. The pianist has the daring to take items such as Robert Schumann, Bach, the Gershwins and Dave Brubeck, and make them work beautifully in the jazz idiom."

My musical theatre production with co-writer/lyricist Theresa Tova, Bella, the Colour of Love, based on the lives of Bella and Marc Chagall, was a huge hit at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia this past October! This was the premier of the full, revamped 2-act version with our new director, the legendary Danny Grossman. We're currently in negotiations to present a 3-week run in Toronto's Harold Greene Theatre this coming fall. I'll post the dates here as soon as they're confirmed!
