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

If you saw the first show, then you could skip the entire first act -- it is a rehash of the first show. I recognized all the characters, all the jokes, all the laugh lines. Still, the first act was okay (it was much better if you HADN'T seen it before). The second act had absolutely nothing to do with the first one -- which is to say it was new and original. There is something to offend most everyone, but only in a glancing way. The show is far too clever and proud of itself, but most audience members really seemed to like it. I give it 3 stars if you haven't seen the first show, only 2 if you have (due to the warmed-over leftovers nature of the first act).

I really liked the first half of the performance. It was witty and funny and very relatable. The second half was more political and, for me, the ongoing stream of witticisms and wordplay became tiresome. I think the actor is very intelligent and...continued

Ten years ago Robert Dubac figured out what women want. He popped open a Corona and invited us into his lopsided brain to witness his hilarious thought process known as The Male Intellect: An Oxymoron? This hysterical one-man show went on to become a worldwide phenomenon, proving humor between the sexes is understood in any language. The reviews were stellar.
The bar was set for his sequel, _Male Intellect: The 2nd Coming! _Part theater and part stand-up, Dubac transforms himself into a cast of characters hell-bent on crystallizing life’s ironies. He picks up where he left off—inside his head—ransacking his brain to figure out what women want. Yes, he figured it out last time…but he’s a man, so he forgot.
This show is presented by Miracle Theatre Productions (MTP), the company that operated the Theatre in Old Town (a Goldstar favorite!) for more than 15 years_.
_Robert Dubac strives to raise our collective humor bar by crystallizing the bigger picture with a wit and intellect that is fueled with ire and filled with charm. He is an innovative performer who is always redefining his roles from actor to comic to writer to director.
Performing came early, and by the age of 14 he began pounding the pavement with a magic act that took him from his home city of Atlanta to gigs up and down the southeast coastline on weekends and during school vacations. Dubac studied drama while performing a magic act that slowly evolved into a fine stand-up comedy routine. Oddly enough he was discovered by the rock n’ roll world and toured with such acts as Kenny Loggins, Linda Rondstadt and Jimmy Buffet.
Finding himself right smack in the middle of the stand-up explosion of the seventies, he made the trek out west and successfully rode the comedy wave until it crashed in on itself in the mid-eighties. It was then that Dubac returned to his dramatic roots when he was chosen to study with a select group of actors under the tutelage of the great Sanford Meisner. After completion he succeeded to work in films, sitcoms and even daytime television. In the early nineties he created his hit one-man show _The Male Intellect: An Oxymoron? _which has been touring worldwide ever since.
In 2006 he launched the sequel to _The Male Intellect: An Oxymoron? _titled Male Intellect: The 2nd Coming. Dubac tours the country with both shows while feverishly finishing the final installment of this solo trilogy, The Male Intellect: Piss and Moan.
In his spare time, he directed another solo show titled _Man 1, Bank 0, _and is embarking on a collaborative performance piece with some like-minded satirists titled _The Barbarians of Truth. _
