This was one of the most beautiful and moving performances I've ever seen. The words and music were equally expressive and haunting. I left the theater speechless, uplifted, and in tears.

This was theatre at its best. A biographical story weaved with brilliant acting and exceptional piano playing. The story is compelling and real and covers personal and historic events. This one is not to be missed.

We had a wonderful experience. The play was excellent. I have to once again thank you for honoring my need for aisle seating and finding that aisle seats were waiting for me. You make the theatre going experience a very easy and pleasant one.
