We went to the Saturday matinee and parked at the Donatello hotel. It was only $10 for 5 hours so you have plenty of time before or after for a bite to eat before or after. There's a half price happy hour at the hotel restaurant too

There's a small lot off Geary St., down an ally. $15 for Sunday. Not bad.

My adult children went with me under duress - then thanked me profusely for making them go. We all thought the narrative was fascinating and the acting superb!

Quotes & Highlights

“Tovah Feldshuh gives such a fiercely committed performance that she does more than resurrect Meir: she embodies an entire country.” – The New York Times
“Tovah Feldshuh’s marvelous, skillful portrayal if the indomitable Golda Meir will remain in your mind long after the curtain has come down.” – The Associated Press

Description

Tovah Feldshuh recreates her award-winning performance as Golda Meir in Golda’s Balcony, a play by William Gibson (The Miracle Worker) and directed by Scott Schwartz, for an exclusive Bay Area engagement.

Golda’s Balcony

is a portrait of the indomitable Meir, the Milwaukee schoolteacher who became Prime Minister of Israel in 1969. From the pogroms of Russia to the halls of the Knesset, Meir’s life-and the play-encapsulates the dramatic story of the birth of Israel in the wake of the Holocaust and its subsequent, seemingly endless struggle for peace for much of the 20th century. The show’s message of humanity’s yearning for peace continues to strike a resonant chord with respect to today’s conflicts in the Middle East. The text, design and direction of Golda’s Balcony remains unchanged from the Broadway production where it holds the record for the longest running one-woman play.

Golda’s Balcony

stars Tony Award nominated Tovah Feldshuh. Ms. Feldshuh’s performance as Meir has received rave reviews and accolades from the press.

Golda’s Balcony

…the performance of a lifetime…the story of the year.
