From The Broadway Blog’s Editor Matthew Wexler:
I’ve had a crush on Michael Feinstein for 25 years. While most guys my age were listening to Sonic Youth and R.E.M. (it was the 80s after all), I was sequestered in my room — obsessing over his rendition of “I Won’t Send Roses/Time Heals Everything.”
Perhaps I was an odd teenager, but since the release of his first album, Live at the Algonquin, Feinstein has been wowing listeners with his tributes to the American songbook. He has breathed new life into the works of George and Ira Gershwin, Burton Lane, Jule Styne, Jerry Herman and countless others. Feinstein has also performed live around the world, including such prestigious venues as Carnegie Hall, Sydney Opera House and the Hollywood Bowl as well as the White House and Buckingham Palace.
