Following sold-out theatrical runs in London, New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles, Grammy nominated American concert pianist, author, and radio host Mona Golabek comes to Pittsburgh’s Byham Theater to perform The Children of Willesden Lane. This theatrical production, based on the best-selling book of the same name written by Ms. Golabek and Lee Cohen, will inspire as it celebrates the triumph of the human spirit and the power of music to transcend the unimaginable.
The Children of Willesden Lane tells the true story Ms. Golabek’s mother, Lisa Jura, a young Jewish girl and gifted pianist from Vienna who dreamed about her debut at the storied Musikverein concert hall. However, everything changed when the Nazi’s occupied Austria. Desperate to save their three daughters, Malka and Abraham Jura were able to secure just one ticket on the Kindertransport rescue mission and were faced with the unimaginable heartbreak of choosing which child to save.
