Charlotte Lee, Founder of Primo Artists, said: “This new program is the culmination of many years of Itzhak Perlman being urged to share the story of his life and career through anecdotes, musical pieces and personal photos from his archives. It will be a first-ever experience for audiences to learn more about the extraordinary 13-year-old boy who became a household name over 60 years ago. I am delighted that we will take this unique and special program to audiences around the world very soon.”
Tony Award-winning Theater director Dan Sullivan said: “We are indeed lucky to have Itzhak share his life and his brilliant playing with us. Personally, there is no one I would rather spend an evening with.”
