The Pianist of Willesden Lane

The Pianist of Willesden Lane

Presented by TheatreWorks at Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts

Starring celebrated pianist Mona Golabek, this tour de force recounts the inspiring true story of Golabek’s mother, Lisa Jura, a young Jewish musician. Created and directed by Hershey Felder, this musical journey follows Jura’s escape from Nazi-occupied Austria via the Kindertransport, and her life at a children’s home on Willesden Lane in London, where she later survived the London Blitz. Combining vivid storytelling and masterful performances of classics by Bach, Beethoven, and Rachmaninoff, this is a one-woman show that illustrates how music can bring light and hope to even the darkest of times.
