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

The show is short and it will hold your attention, but there is a distinct lack of sensationalism and therefore fun in what is at its heart a melodramatic piece. I don't think John Doyle is the right director for this piece, he keeps too much control and doesn't let the melodrama flow. Instead, we get a lot of yammering about good vs. evil, even to the point of absurdity in the play's last few minutes. There are some good performances but don't go in expecting to see the movie!
