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

Life: A Guide for the Perplexed
is a seriously silly and crazy comic recipe for survival in the modern world. The Flying Karamazov Brothers sing, dance and juggle their way through a mid-life crisis that becomes a dazzling romp through the stages of life.
Bring your children, bring your grandmother and expect the unexpected with looney musical numbers and stunts. And of course Dimitri, the Champ, will face the challenge of juggling any three items the audience brings to the stage!
