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.

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!

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.

The seats were among the worst I've ever received from Goldstar. They were way up in the balcony in the "nose bleed" section. The stage looked like a postage stamp, and... continued

The stars were Mona Golabek and the Steinway. The performance was emotional and magnificent, the staging somber and appropriate, the auditorium roomy and well sized.
