Hershey Felder Presents
Mona Golabek in
The Pianist of Willesden Lane

based on the book
"The Children of Willesden Lane"
by Mona Golabek and Lee Cohen
adapted and directed by Hershey Felder
December 5 – 22

An exquisite musical memoir
Recommended for Ages 10 and up

Grammy-nominated pianist and storyteller Mona Golabek shares the gripping, biographical tale of her mother’s escape from Vienna in 1938. When the young Jewish piano prodigy finds her dreams threatened by the looming war, she escapes to England on the Kindertransport. Ms. Golabek tells an incomparable true story while interweaving the music of Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, Debussy, and even a little Gershwin in this elegant and beautiful production.
