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
