THEATER | 'Bravura' 

You might be familiar with Rochester's Hochstein School of Music & Dance, but what do you know about its namesake? Born in 1892 to Jewish immigrants, David Hochstein grew up on Joseph Avenue and graduated from East High School. Considered a violin prodigy, Emily Sibley Watson and George Eastman were patrons to his education. And in his young adulthood he made his Carnegie Hall debut with a Stradivarius violin provided by Eastman. But Hochstein cut his brilliant career short when the US entered "The Great War" in 1917, when he enlisted to serve. He was killed a year later. Marking the 100th anniversary of Hochstein's death, Rochester playwright Stuart Loeb and local director Donald B. Bartalo will this week present "BRAVURA: The Life and Death of David Hochstein," a fictionalized retelling of the courageous life and legacy of this historic Rochesterian.

"Bravura" will be performed at the MuCCC, 142 Atlantic Avenue, from November 8 to November 18. Show times are Thursday, November 8 through Saturday, November 10, at 7:30 p.m.; Wednesday, November 14, through Saturday, November 17, at 7:30 p.m.; and on Sundays, November 11 and 18, at 2 p.m. Tickets are $15 advance and $20 at the door. 450-9933; bravuratheplay.com.
