The Pianist: A Play with Music
Adapted for the stage by Emily Mann

Based on the book “The Pianist” by Władysław Szpilman

Directed by Emily Mann

In a new adaptation for the stage, The Pianist is Władysław Szpilman’s harrowing account of the annihilation of Jewish life in Warsaw during World War II and his remarkable survival through the transcendent power of music.

His memoir inspired an Oscar-winning film – and now acclaimed Playwright/Director Emily Mann has crafted an innovative, immersive play with music that delivers this terrifying and triumphant tale with soul-shaking power and thrilling theatrical immediacy.
