It's a miracle she was able to become a concert pianist, a miracle her daughter was able to do the same, and a miracle her daughter can give her performance night after night.

One of the most remarkable shows we have ever seen. It is extremely emotional, beautifully performed by an excellent pianist and actress. Must go and see.

Our seats were very good and we loved the play. Parking was easy. It was surprising that the theater wasn't full. The only thing was that we paid $23 dollars per ticket and on the ticket the price was listed as $22. Not much of a bargain!

Outstanding! Mona Golabek was wonderful and completely transfixed the audience as she became her mother. The Hershey Felder influence was evident and the production displayed all of his special touches. Thank you Mona. Thank you Hershey.

The story was extremely moving and Ms. Golabek is a FANTASTIC pianist. This is a "Don't Miss" production. Also, my seat was SUPER - 2nd row center!

Very moving. A compelling story, made all the more so because the it was true and personal to the narrator. Golabeck has a good voice, tells the story well. A small, personal story, but very much worthwhile seeing. There wasn't a dry eye in the...continued

Wonderful show. Definitely worth seeing. Very few stories about the Holocaust are uplifting. Although there is tragedy, there is also much perseverance, kindness, luck and talent that transcends the loss.
