A frequent contributor to the live theatrical landscape as a director, Todd is also the founder of Smartphone Theatre, a digital stage he created in March of 2020 at the onset of the pandemic. What has since transpired is an online anthology series of original live stage plays, conversations and poetry that include actors, writers and directors from Broadway to Hollywood. The platform continues to reach audiences where traditional brick and mortar venues were unable: on a global scale. Todd is a directing member of the Actors Studio and very active in their Play Development Unit.

Fringe Review - Recommended!

Felderstein's stage adaptation of

"The Owl and The Pussycat" gushes

with carnal creativity

"Beautifully designed set in a small

stage. Brilliant acting by both actors."

 

Marlies Bauer Bell and Zach Fouché. Insightful, poignant and playful adaptation and direction by Todd Felderstein."

"Fantastic, hilarious and captivating. Not a boring or false moment even within the absurdity of the plot. I could not stop watching, it was riveting. Could not take my eyes off the players. It moved fast and was completely captivating! I loved this modern interpretation! Todd Felderstein is an amazing, gifted director."
