Mona Golabek was wonderful! Her description of her mother's life and her piano playing were very moving. I recommend this performance to anyone who loves classical music and wants to find out more about the impact of the kinder transport.

This is a unique theater experience. Mona Golabek is extraordinary. The performance is in a theater that does not have a bad seat in it, so the whole event feels very intimate and wonderful. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

An absolutely stunning show. I am sad that it is closing this weekend, as I am recommending it to friends, most of whom are already booked.

Profoundly moving experience BOTH dramatically and musically.
