I have seen a lot of theater, but rarely a solo performance. This work was so enchanting and the music so lovely... it just kept me captivated the entire time. I wished it wouldn't end. Enjoy!

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!
