We are frequent theater goers and this the best we have seen this year.

This is the most magnificent true story, with an exquisite classical pianist, that you will ever see and listen to in a theatre. Her presentation is non-stop for 90 minutes and is not to be missed. I cannot rave enough. Please go to see it.
