About

British-born, James Inverne enjoys a dual career as a writer and a consultant to some of the world's leading classical musicians (see here). In the former capacity, James started early as Classical CD Reviewer for the Mail On Sunday, after which he became European Performing Arts Correspondent for TIME, a regular arts writer/commentator for the Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, Sunday Telegraph and CNN, and the Editor of Gramophone Magazine. The author of five books (most recently for Faber), his first play, A WALK WITH MR HEIFETZ had its world premiere Off-Broadway in 2018 (Primary Stages), his second recently had a developmental reading with London's Ambassador Theatre Group, and a third play is currently being agonised over.

 

Play: A Walk With Mr Heifetz

"A Walk With Mr Heifetz" is James Inverne's first play. It received its world premiere in 2018 with leading Off Broadway theatre company Primary Stages, at the Cherry Lane Theatre in New York. Directed by Primary Stages's Artistic Director Andrew Leynse, the cast included Yuval Boim, Adam Green, Erik Lochtefeld and Mariella Haubs. Prior to this, it received a special public 'preview' reading at London's Jewish Books Week festival, with a cast including Henry Goodman, Ed Stoppard and Yuval Boim, directed by Benjamine Kamine. The play tells the remarkable story of an encounter between composer and kibbutz pioneer Yehuda Sharett and the legendary violinist Jascha Heifetz, and its effects on Yehuda and his brother, Israeli founding father Moshe Sharett (for enquiries please contact Broadway Licensing Inc. or see here).
