Great production. Great performance. A great history lesson, not just of one woman, but of the movement which led to the creation of the State of Israel as seen through her eyes.

Excellent show. One-person shows are so hard to do, but Ms. Feldshuh handled it with ease. Her Q & A after was exceptional; she is quite witty.

Description

In turn deeply funny and frighteningly prescient, Golda’s Balcony poses the altogether too contemporary question of  “What if the Middle East exploded?”

Written by William Gibson

Starring Tovah Feldshuh

For her work on the New York stage, from _Yentl _to _Saravà! _to _Lend Me A Tenor _to Golda’s Balcony, Tovah Feldshuh has earned four Tony nominations for Best Actress and won four Drama Desk Awards, four Outer Critics Circle Awards, The Obie, The Theatre World Award and The Lucille Lortel Award for Best Actress. On October 3, 2004, _Golda’s Balcony _became the longest-running one-woman show in the history of Broadway.

Since the Broadway run, Ms. Feldshuh has played sold-out engagements of _Golda’s Balcony _in London, Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Francisco. She starred on Broadway as Polish Christian rescuer Irena Gut Opdyke in Dan Gordon’s _Irena’s Vow _for which she was voted Best Performance of the Year by thousands on BroadwayWorld.com. Her most recent New York performance was in Nora and Delia Ephron’s off-Broadway smash, Love, Loss, and What I Wore.

Film audiences recognize Ms. Feldshuh from Fox Searchlight’s Kissing Jessica Stein, for which she won the Golden Satellite Award for Best Supporting Actress; _A Walk On The Moon _with Diane Lane and Viggo Mortensen; _Lady in the Water _for M. Night Shyamalan opposite Paul Giamatti; _Just My Luck _with Lindsay Lohan; _The Idolmaker _(directed by Taylor Hackford); and _Toll Booth _(winner – Best Supporting Actress – Method Fest 2005). She appeared on the big screen in _O Jerusalem _as Golda Meir opposite Ian Holm, _Love Life _for German director Maria Schrader, and _Love Comes Lately _at the Sundance Film Festival. Films soon to be released include _Mount of Olives _with F. Murray Abraham, David Garrett’s _Ten Stories Tall _playing love-torn Grace Parker, _Baker _as army nurse Ruth Baker and _Heterosexuals _as fine art dealer Remy. On television, she received her first Emmy nomination for her portrayal of the Czech freedom fighter Helena in Holocaust. She starred opposite Tommy Lee Jones in The Amazing Howard Hughes, James Woods in Citizen Cohn, Bill Cosby on The Cosby Mysteries and The Cosby Show, and Richard Dreyfuss in The Education Of Max Bickford. In 2004 she was nominated for her second Emmy for her work on Law & Order as defense attorney Danielle Melnick.

Her one-woman show, Tovah: Out Of Her Mind!, sold out in London’s West End at the Duke Of York’s, and culminated in a symphonic concert with Billy Crystal at Los Angeles’ Royce Hall. The Boston Globe selected _Tovah: Out Of Her Mind! _as the best one-person show of 2000. Ms. Feldshuh created a new concert entitled _Mining Golda: My Journey to Golda Meir _which also played the West End at the Savoy Theatre, as well as the Sheridan Suites in Manchester, The Royal Armouries in Leeds, Vodaworld in Johannesburg and The Entertainment Centre of Sydney, Australia. Ms. Feldshuh is the recipient of the Eleanor Roosevelt Humanitas Award, The Israel Peace Medal and an Honorary Doctorate from Yeshiva University.
