In almost 50 years of theatre-going, I would have to rate this production as flawless and perfection. It would make my top 10 of all time best shows - DO NOT MISS IT! !

Description

Adapted and Directed by Hershey Felder

Based on the book The Children of Willesden Lane by Mona Golabek and Lee Cohen

American concert pianist Mona Golabek has appeared at the Hollywood Bowl, the Kennedy Center and Royal Festival Hall. She is a Grammy nominee and has received numerous awards. She has been the subject of several documentaries including Concerto for Mona with conductor Zubin Mehta. Golabek’s syndicated radio program, The Romantic Hours_, combines music with poetry. Her recordings include Carnival of the Animals and Ravel’s Mother Goose Suite_ featuring Meryl Streep, both recorded with Ms. Golabek’s sister, Renee Golabek-Kaye. Both daughters were taught by their mother, Lisa Jura, who is the subject of Golabek’s acclaimed book, The Children of Willesden Lane. Ms. Golabek founded Hold On To Your Music, a foundation devoted to spreading the message of the power of music. With the help of the Milken Family Foundation and the Annenberg Foundation, she created educational resources which, with her book, have been adopted into school curricula across America.
