The indomitable Lilia Skala comes to life in her granddaughter’s deeply personal one woman show. Lilia Skala escaped Nazi Austria and worked her way out of a NY zipper factory to become an Oscar nominated actress. She appeared in such Broadway productions as Three Penny Opera and Diary of Anne Frank, and in such movies as Ship of Fools, Charly, and Flashdance. Libby’s performance continues the lifelong conversation between grandmother and granddaughter, recording the journey of a remarkable spirit.
The New York Times praises Lilia! as “magnetic,” “cloaked in magic,” and “deliciously poignant.” Libby’s tender celebration of her grandmother’s extraordinary life promises to be an evening of exquisite theater.
