The Pianist of Willesden Lane Tickets

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.

The Pianist of Willesden Lane Customer reviews

Our Review

There's something fundamentally remarkable about Lisa Jura's story of resilience and the overwhelming power of music. Though the plot sounds like a Hollywood film, the fact that it's a true story and one that is told skilfully by her own daughter, Mona Golabek not only makes it all the more compelling but also provides a sense of attachment that makes for an utterly moving piece of theatre.
