Hershey Felder, known for creating solo shows with a singular blend of musical biography, character study and piano virtuosity, teams up with Nathan to create a semi-autobiographical one-man show. Through humor and song, NATHAN GUNN FLYING SOLO illuminates a behind-the-scenes look into the fabulous and crazy industry and career that is opera.
Broadway World raved about the project’s premiere at Laguna Playhouse, writing:
“[This] riveting autobiographical musical is a stunner both with its touching, relatable family-centric narrative and Gunn’s entertaining, charismatic performing style…
Genuinely appealing, surprisingly humble, and overflowing with musicality, Gunn is enjoyable to watch both as a spry, yet easygoing storyteller and as a well-trained interpreter of operatic masterpieces and classics from the Great American Songbook.”
