Grammy-nominated pianist Mona Golabek pays moving tribute to her pianist mother -- a survivor of the Holocaust and the London Blitz -- in this hit concert drama directed by audience favorite Hershey Felder. Golabek, seated onstage at the piano, performs some of the world's most beloved piano music while sharing harrowing true tales of her mother's life. As a young Jewish pianist in 1938 Vienna, Golabek's mother, Lisa Jura, dreamt of a concert debut at the storied Musikverein concert hall. But when she was swept up in the "Kindertransport" to London in an attempt to be protected from the Nazi regime, everything about Jura's life was upended -- except her love of music. The "Los Angeles Times" calls "The Pianist of Willesden Lane" "an arresting, deeply affecting triumph." Catch Golabek, who won the 2015 Outstanding Solo Performance Award from The San Diego Theatre Critics Circle for her performance, when "The Pianist of Willesden Lane" returns to Lyceum Theatre as part of the 22nd Annual Lipinsky Family San Diego Jewish Arts Festival.

It's hard to shock Broadway; it's harder still to thrill New Yorkers with ... a musical interpretation of a 19th-century German expressionist play. And, yet, "Spring Awakening" might just be the most exhilarating piece of musical theater in the new century. Electrified by a jolting and beautiful rock score co-written by "Barely Breathing" pop mastermind Duncan Sheik, this Tony- and Grammy-winning musical follows a group of teenagers as they navigate the confusing and often troubled waters of adolescence and their budding sexuality. And, while it's based on Frank Wedekind's 1891 dramatic masterpiece, it perfectly captures the timeless and turbulent experience of youth transitioning to adulthood. Now CYC Theatre presents this new classic at the Lyceum Theatre, produced and directed by Shaun T. Evans. [less-]

Get swept off your feet by "84 Charing Cross Road", a romantic ode to the written word. Based on Helene Hanff's 1970 book -- adapted into a beloved West End play by acclaimed British director James Roose-Evans -- the story tracks 20-years' worth of business letters between a young struggling writer in New York and a delightfully dusty supplier at an antiquarian book store in London. It's a trans-Atlantic love story of sorts, celebrating the love of good literature. Anne Bancroft, Anthony Hopkins and Judi Dench have all lent their talents to previous performances of "84 Charing Cross Road".
