The American Club proudly presents The Children of Willesden Lane, the critically acclaimed one-woman theatrical performance by concert pianist Mona Golabek. The show is based on Golabek’s book and recounts the story of her mother’s survival, resilience and triumph during World War II.
Mona Golabek is the daughter of Lisa Jura. Lisa was a child piano prodigy born in Vienna, Austria, who came to England as a refugee in 1938 as part of the Kindertransport rescue operation. Mona’s father, Michel Golabek, was a French resistance fighter, who received the Croix de Guerre. Mona’s grandparents died at Auschwitz.
Mona, deeply inspired by her mother's story and the last words her mother heard at the train station, “Hold on to your music….it will be your best friend” became a concert pianist and has performed with major conductors and orchestras worldwide. The Grammy nominee and prolific recording artist has traveled the globe sharing her mother’s story.

“Stunning theater that will leave you emotionally breathless” — Broadway World
“Golabek sitting at the Steinway is enough to make you wonder at the way of the world” — Chicago Tribune
