'Pianist' plays last notes Sunday in MV

The TheatreWorks Silicon Valley’s production of “The Pianist of Willesden Lane” is set to run through Sunday at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, 500 Castro St.

Holding on to dreams of concert success, a young Jewish pianist escapes Vienna via the Kindertransport, arriving in England at the outset of World War II. Concert pianist Mona Golabek recounts her mother’s saga of hope and resilience, underscored with music from Bach, Beethoven and more.

Shows are slated 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $45-$105.
