This is my second time. Fantastic. I took my 13 year old great niece who really understood and liked the play She too is a pianist. I believe more young adults should be seeing this play.

This was my first purchase with Goldstar and I would do it again in a heartbeat. Purchasing was simple and straightforward. Seats could not have been any better, and the performance was phenomenal. I give it a 10!!

This was one of the best, most meaningful shows I have ever attended. Our seats were fine, although it looks most seats would be very good for viewing the show. Mona Golabek did a fantastic job telling her mother's story and her piano talent was...continued

This was truly a great experience. We are so glad we saw this. Not only was the story told so touching, but interspersed with the beautiful music played by an accomplished professional made this a unique story-telling experience.
