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.

Do not miss this show! It is a must-see. Wonderful story and beautiful music exquisitely played by the grand-daughter of a couple who died at Auschwitz. A great tribute to the bravery and spirit of people who live through horrible events.

A moving story of a young Jewish woman's determination to overcome obstacles and realize her musical dream in the face of the Holocaust, narrated by her daughter Mona Golabek and entwined with Ms Golabek's magnificent piano playing.
