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

MY HUSBAND AND I THOUGHT THE ACTING WAS VERY GOOD.
I WAS UNDER THE IMPRESSION THAT IT WAS A COMEDY ABOUT
A MATH TEAM IN HIGH SCHOOL. IT WAS JUST THAT UNTIL THEY
INJECTED IT WITH HOMOSEXUALITY. WE GOT UP AND WALKED OUT.
WE FEEL THAT IT (HOMOSEXUAL CONTENT)SHOULD HAVE BEEN LISTED UNDER THE "WARNING"
LABEL AS IS ADULT LANGUAGE AND OR NUDITY IS. IF IT HAD BEEN,
WE WOULD NOT HAVE BOUGHT TICKETS. OTHER THAN THAT, WE
FEEL THE ACTING WAS TERIFFIC.
Can it be true? Has knowing the answer to an algebraic equation finally become cool? Was it the release of Danica McKeller’s (star of The Wonder Years) recent best seller Math Doesn’t Suck: How to Survive Middle-School Math Without Losing Your Mind or Breaking a Nail, or maybe the 2001 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning play Proof (which ironically enough McKellar starred in at the San Diego Rep) that recently launched math into the limelight? However it happened, young women and their relationships to math have suddenly become the hot topic. As always, MOXIE Theatre has its finger on the pulse of recent trends and is proud to bring this recent Off-Broadway hit to the West Coast.
This incredibly funny play is for everyone who remembers the pain and drama of high school and for young adults who are just now experiencing it. November 25-December 16, 2007 at the Lyceum Theatre.
