The Pianist of Willesden Lane
September 24, 2019 @ 8:00 pm
Sep 08 – 29, 2019 | Sylvan Adams Theatre
An exquisite musical memoir, The Pianist of Willesden Lane is based on the true story of a young Jewish musical prodigy, Lisa Jura, whose talent was her ticket to escape Nazi-ruled Vienna for the relative safety of London during the Blitzkrieg. In this inspirational show, Jura’s daughter, Grammy-nominated piano virtuoso Mona Golabek, performs some of the world’s most beautiful music as she shares her mother’s riveting story of survival.
Featuring the music of such greats as Debussy, Bach, Grieg, Beethoven, and Chopin, performed live on a Steinway concert piano.
“This elegant, heartfelt solo show…is an arresting, deeply affecting triumph.”
– The Los Angeles Times
“An astonishing tour de force…Stunningly good.”
– San Francisco Chronicle
“A remarkable story … deeply affecting.”
– The New York Times
Based on the book The Children of Willesden Lane by Mona Golabek and Lee Cohen
