Actress portrayed a significant and personal story. As a pianist, she seemed to be only fairly accomplished compared to the great soloists & recitals readily available in this area.

Fabulous! Absolutely marvelous story. The pianist was wonderful, her acting great and such a moving, heartfelt story. No wonder it was extended five times! So thrilled to have been able to see it and catch the last performance.

It doesn't matter what your religious, ethnic or social background it.... this story is very moving and told with genuine feeling. The music adds to the emotion. I could listen to Ms. Golabek play for hours. This production is not to be missed!

Mona Golabek not only has a captivating story to tell, she tells it in a riveting, captivating manor. Her piano skills are also exceptional, and adeptly woven throughout her narrative. Highly recommended.

Music, lovely; narrative compelling; Ms
Golabeck, though charming, is not as good an actor as a pianist.But she could be! (with a short session of coaching)
