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 we were only able to hear about fifty percent of the dialogue. I would...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.

This was the second time I saw this amazing production. Mona Golabek is a star! I thoroughly enjoyed seeing The Pianist of Willesden Lane in May and so I took my 16 year old granddaughter to see it. She also enjoyed it and said, "We should do this...continued

We had a wonderful experience. The play was excellent. I have to once again thank you for honoring my need for aisle seating and finding that aisle seats were waiting for me. You make the theatre going experience a very easy and pleasant one.
