Grammy-nominated pianist Mona Golabek pays moving tribute to her pianist mother -- a survivor of the Holocaust and the London Blitz -- 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

We were disappointed that in a theater barely two thirds full, our "seats issued by theater (Lyceum)" were in the very last row. There were fully 3 totally empty rows ahead of us. We will not do Goldstar at the Lyceum again if the seats are not assigned ahead of time.

The Broadway musical Ain’t Misbehavin’ won three Tony Awards and a New York Drama Critic’s Circle Award. Thirty unforgettable numbers make this sassy and sexy, dance-and-song hit parade one of the most entertaining musicals of our time!
The Harlem Renaissance was one of the most astonishing explosions of creativity in modern American history. Musical genius was onstage most every night at venues like The Cotton Club and The Savoy Ballroom. Clubs on Lennox Avenue were ablaze with stride piano players stunning the world with the new beat of “swing.” And Fats Waller was the king of the street!
Conceived by Richard Maltby, Jr. and Murray Horwitz
Directed and choreographed by Patdro Harris (Crowns)
Musical direction by JMichael
