THE PIANIST OF WILLESDEN LANE

Adapted and Directed By HERSHEY FELDER
Based on the book The Children of Willesden Lane - Beyond the Kindertransport: A Memoir Of Music, Love, and Survival By MONA GOLABEK and LEE COHEN
With MONA GOLABEK
Mona Golabek discusses her mother's, and her own, journey with The Wall Street Journal.

Set in Vienna in 1938 and in London during the Blitz, The Pianist of Willesden Lane tells the true story of Lisa Jura, a young Jewish pianist who is dreaming about her concert debut at Vienna's storied Musikverein concert hall. But with the issuing of new ordinances under the Nazi regime, everything for Lisa changes, except for her love of music and the pursuit of her dream.

Featuring some of the world's most beloved piano music played live, The Pianist of Willesden Lane is performer Mona Golabek's true family story; a story of music, family survival, and hope.

The Pianist of Willesden Lane makes its New York premiere after critically acclaimed, sold out runs in Chicago, Boston, Berkeley, and Los Angeles.
