touching story, excellent pianist,very enjoyable overall. venue is nice, could see quite well even though we were in balcony. parking is a challenge, if possible, park on clybourn. you don't have to buy a parking ticket (yet).

Very talented performance made more poignant by the fact that she was the subject's daughter!
