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

This is a well-written story of relationships between men and women and women and women, being friends, lovers, and victims, about racism, about the nonpossibilities of religion. Each in our own little cube of life. Extraordinary actors, sets, and stories. So real, even in this day, 100 years later. Thought provoking, and thankful we are who we are at this time in history. Thank you!
Two women - who've been there, survived, surpassed, risen above, and can now match stories of better lives - enjoyed this play immensely. I'm only soirry I did not bring my (current) husband; he would have enjoyed as well.

Intimate Apparel is a deceptively simple play about a seamstress at the turn of the century who sews intimate apparel for prostitutes and ladies on Fifth Avenue. It’s an exploration of race and class in America, and desire and hope.
