The Pianist of Willesden Lane - The Segal Centre is proud to present the stirring and inspiring Hershey Felder Presents production of The Pianist of Willesden Lane in the Sylvan Adams Theatre from September 8 to 29, 2019. The show stars internationally acclaimed storyteller and concert pianist Mona Golabek as she recounts her own mother’s tale of hope and survival during the Second World War. The production is adapted and directed by Montrealer and Dora Wasserman Yiddish Theatre veteran Hershey Felder and is 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. Set in Vienna in 1938 and in London during the Blitz, The Pianist of Willesden Lane tells the inspirational story of Lisa Jura, a young Jewish pianist who is dreaming about her concert debut at Vienna's storied Musikverein concert hall. However, with the issuing of new ordinances under the Nazi regime, everything changes for Lisa, except for her love of music and the pursuit of her dream. With three daughters and only one passage to safety on the Kindertransport, the “children’s train” that rescued thousands of European children by bringing them to England, Lisa’s mother and father are confronted with a choice. Lisa is selected out of her sisters, separated from her family, and embarks on a moving journey as she strives to keep herself and her goals alive. Featuring the music of such greats as Debussy, Bach, Grie, Beethoven, and Chopin, performed live on a Steinway concert piano.
