The Pianist of Willesden Lane at the St. James Theatre

A true story of family, hope and survival told through the world’s most beautiful music.

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 – as she is torn from her family and set onto the Kindertransport to London.

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. The production returns to the St. James Theatre after critically acclaimed, sold out runs in New York, Chicago, Boston, Berkeley, Los Angeles, and San Diego.

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.

The Pianist of Willesden Lane plays from 7 September until 22 October 2016 at the St. James Theatre.
