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

Holding fast to dreams of concert success, a young Jewish pianist escapes Vienna via the Kindertransport, arriving in England at the outset of World War II. In a stunning, nationally-acclaimed performance, concert pianist Mona Golabek recounts her mother’s poignant saga of hope and resilience, underscored with extraordinary music from Bach, Beethoven, and many more. Created by TheatreWorks favorite Hershey Felder, it celebrates the power of music to transcend even the darkest of times.
