Pianist Mona Golabek pays moving tribute to her pianist mother -- a survivor of the Holocaust and the London Blitzkrieg -- in this hit concert drama directed by audience favorite Hershey Felder. Golabek, seated onstage at the piano, performs some of the world's most beloved piano music while sharing harrowing true tales of her mother's life. As a young Jewish pianist in 1938 Vienna, Golabek's mother, Lisa Jura, dreamt of a concert debut at the storied Musikverein concert hall. But when she was swept up in the Kindertransport to London in an attempt to be protected from the Nazi regime, everything about Jura's life was upended -- except her love of music. The Los Angeles Times calls The Pianist of Willesden Lane "an arresting, deeply affecting triumph." Learn More

An extremely smart script and a spot-on cast! Everything came together beautifully and was historical, contemporary, and timeless all at once. A very thought-provoking look at Shakespeare, his Company, and the context that gave rise to his great works. The lingering questions about the Gunpowder Plot and political maneuverings in England at that time are resonant and haunting. Equivocation is a powerful work, and I would not be surprised to read about this production on Broadway someday soon!
Join Shakespeare and his winsome troupe in this fantastic new tale that satiates Bard-loving purists and advocates of groundbreaking theater alike. The runaway hit of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and a sure-to-be classic, Equivocation pits the poetry of the world’s greatest playwright against the word of his King. Written in modern English with playful allusions to some of the Bard’s greatest works, Equivocation’s gripping narrative, keen humor and political intrigue culminate in what critics are calling “dazzling,” “a masterful work” and “the must-see play of the season.”
