The perfect mix of good acting and beautiful music. The actress tells a compelling story laced with classical music on a grand piano. The production has been extended five times and she received a standing ovation. Don't miss this one!

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!

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.
