Berkeley Rep Extends THE PIANIST OF WILLESDEN LANE thru Jan 5

Berkeley Repertory Theatre announces that The Pianist of Willesden Lane, starring internationally acclaimed pianist Mona Golabek, is extending for an additional four weeks due to resounding praise from audiences and critics alike. A riveting tale of hope and the life-affirming power of music, The Pianist of Willesden Lane will now play through January 5 for an additional 28 performances.

The show is adapted and directed by award-winning musician Hershey Felder and based on the book The Children of Willesden Lane by Golabek and Lee Cohen. Set in Vienna in 1938 and in London during the Blitzkrieg, the musical drama tells the true story of Golabek's mother, Lisa Jura, a young Jewish musician whose dreams are interrupted by the Nazi regime. Golabek performs some of the world's most beautiful music as she chronicles the true story of her mother's survival.
