Golda’s Balcony starring Tovah Feldshuh
On Stage at Theater J
April 10-27, 2014
Voices From A Changing Middle East Festival
By William Gibson
Starring Tovah Feldshuh
Broadway Production supervised by Scott Schwartz
A riveting portrait of one of the great women of our time, Golda Meir, Golda’s Balcony is the final work from Tony® Award-winning playwright William Gibson (The Miracle Worker, Two for the Seesaw), and an award-winning smash that, in 15 sold-out months on Broadway, set the record for the longest one-woman show in Broadway history.
From the pogroms of Russia to the halls of the Knesset, the story of Golda Meir is the story of the state of Israel in the 20th century. Starring four-time Tony® and two-time Emmy® Award-nominated TOVAH FELDSHUH, this one-woman tour de force promises to be a thrilling, deeply moving and unforgettable night of theatre.
