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

I loved this play! I enjoyed it so immensely that I returned to see it again two days later! It's a "don't miss", and I would love to see this go to
off-Broadway. The passion of the lead character, Devon, rivals the passion of the teenage boy in Equus, without the dark undertones that fueled the passion of the young Alan Strang character. Also, as a "horse person" from childhood, I could identify with Devon's passion for horses. Not just for horse lovers, but for anyone who can appreciate good theatre. It's a real treat to have experienced this suberb production locally. Thanks Moxie Theatre!
MOXIE Theatre is proud to continue in its mission to provide more diverse images of women for our culture, especially in this next exciting production full of humor and truth that follows a female horse jockey on an incredible journey.
Devil Dog Six is an imaginative and physical comedy, which transports its audience to Louisiana and into the fast-paced world of thoroughbred racing.
Esther Emery and Jennifer Eve Thorn co-direct this World Premiere. Two directors with unique styles and visions collaborate to bring this rich world and cast of characters to life. Audiences will be pleased to see Emery’s work on two stages in San Diego at the same time. Bunbury at Diversionary Theatre, also directed by Emery, opens just three weeks prior to Devil Dog Six! Other recent successes for Emery include Yellowman (Cygnet Theatre) and Limonade Tous Les Jours (MOXIE). Fans of MOXIE’s final production in their first season, Fall, will be happy to see Thorn’s return to directing as well.
Devil Dog Six received staged readings at the Unknown Theatre in 2006 and at the New Jersey Rep in 2005. This is the first fully staged production of this play by Mary Fengar Gail, an award-winning playwright whose work glorifies the magic of live theatre and stretches the imagination of actors and audiences alike.
