The show was amazing. Everyone should see this. I have never used gold star before, but bought three different Chicago venues this week. In each one the service was great and the seats as good as if I had chosen them myself-this was one concern...continued

The story was moving and heart felt. Her excellent piano playing was an added dimension to her mother's life story. Highly recommend the show.

The story and music were amazing. This is not a sad ,depressing story. Rather it is life affirming.

This autobiographical journey is uniquely engaging. Fabulous concert piano enjoyment and heartrending story of family love never lost. I can't imaging anyone would not treasure this evening.

This is a great story that deserves to be told over and over again. Mona Golabek is adept at channeling her mother, Lisa Jura. This is the humbling story of a Jewish teenager chosen to flee from Vienna during the Kindertransport and the...continued

This is a wonderful show, a real tour de force - moving, funny, emotional and a fascinating story of one of the children that went on the Kindertransport from Vienna to England right before WWII began. A marvelous theater experience!

This is an amazing performance by the daughter of the woman who is the subject of the play. Every aspect of the play is superb from the acting to the music to the ever changing photos shown in giant baroque style frames. One of the fastest hour...continued

This is my second time. Fantastic. I took my 13 year old great niece who really understood and liked the play She too is a pianist. I believe more young adults should be seeing this play.

This one-woman show blew me away. Her talents - excellent acting & expert piano playing - made the audience forget that she was, in fact, acting. The set was thoughtful and played an integral part in the play, itself. We, the audience, were...continued

This was a wonderful theater piece, especially for classical music lovers. The combination of strong technical performance and stagecraft was compelling. The piece, told from the bench of a concert grand piano, tells the story of a teenage...continued

This was my first purchase with Goldstar and I would do it again in a heartbeat. Purchasing was simple and straightforward. Seats could not have been any better, and the performance was phenomenal. I give it a 10!!

This was one of the best, most meaningful shows I have ever attended. Our seats were fine, although it looks most seats would be very good for viewing the show. Mona Golabek did a fantastic job telling her mother's story and her piano talent was...continued
