See ‘Irving Berlin’ and Never Hear ‘Suppertime’ the Same

As the hardtrundling staff noted the other day, the Missus and I thoroughly enjoyed the excellent Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin production at the Cutler Majestic Theatre.

What we derelictly failed to note was Felder’s moving performance of Suppertime, the song Berlin wrote in 1933 for Ethel Waters in the wake of two dozen lynchings of black men in the south.

 

 

Irving Berlin was a lot more than God Bless America.
