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.

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.
