A thoroughly engaging true story about a concert pianist who became holocaust survivor, performed by her daughter, who, herself, is a highly competent pianist. The classical pieces played fit wonderfully in to the story line.

A very emotional story- great performance and music.
Our seats were in the balcony which was wonderful, because it gave us a good view of the piano and the pianist's hands . I highly recommend seeing it.

astonishing tour de force. And what a story! Glad it has been extended for the 4th time! It deserves it. I would love to know how the two sisters also survived and how they got together after war.

Intense, powerful performance was deeply moving. Mona Golabek is extremely talented; it's hard to imagine how she can stay composed while retelling her family's war story.
