Michael and I were impressed with every aspect of this performance; the story, the stage set, the acting and of course the music. It was a compelling, riveting experience.

Mona Golabek did a tremendous job of relating her mother's touching story and enchanting us with her beautiful music. What a wonderful legacy Lisa Jura left both her daughters!

Picking up the tickets...continued
