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 went in spite of some of the negative reviews I read on here. I'm so glad I didn't listen! The set was simple and unimpressive, but it is a black-box theatre with no fly-space so most booked-in shows I see there are simple. That having been said, the show itself was amazing. The Hart twins have angelic voices and the rest of the cast was very powerful in their voices and acting. I really loved that there were a handful of young, student performers in the show as well. It's nice to see some companies taking an interest in youth since there are a lot of worse things kids can be doing with their time. The story is interesting but not mind-blowing, but the talent on stage is definitely worth the ticket price!
