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.
“An incisive, powerfully-varied portrait of a remarkable woman!” – Time Out NY

Memory Ball 2014 “Dancing Stars” Gala
Baltimore’s premier black tie gala/dance competition will return by popular demand! With ABC2 News Anchor Jamie Costello returning as emcee, the evening will feature a cocktail reception, full-course gourmet dinner, dancing to live music by Highway Star and a showcase of local ballroom and Latin talent.
The event’s highlight, the “Dancing Stars” competition, will take place among individuals and couples chosen for their leadership in the community and their support of the Alzheimer’s Association. Many of them also have personal connections to Alzheimer’s disease.
The Dancing Stars will perform before a panel of judges that includes Maryland First Lady Katie O’Malley, Debbie Phelps (director, Baltimore County Public Schools Foundation), Memory Ball 2013 Fundraising Champion Jane Sewell (executive director, Union Mills Homestead Foundation), Stan Stovall (news anchor, Baltimore WBAL-TV 11), and Vincent M. Lancisi (artistic director, Everyman Theatre).
They will vie to win the Judge’s Choice Trophy for the best technical skill and the You’re Our Star Trophy for raising the most money for the Alzheimer’s Association. Dancers can earn votes online at www.alz.org/maryland before the event and by the audience at the Ball: $1/vote.
Event co-chairs are Susan Boltansky Mann (long-time Memory Ball committee member and community volunteer with a family connection to Alzheimer’s disease) and Deborah Gisriel Bittar, M.D. (pediatrician with Main Street Pediatrics, whose mother suffers from Alzheimer’s disease).
Proceeds will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association’s many programs and services, as well as raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders, which now affect more than 86,000 people in Maryland.
