Master clowns Bill Irwin (Scapin, Waiting for Godot), a two-time Tony winner, and David Shiner (Cirque du Soleil, Seussical) bring their stage hit Old Hats to A.C.T. Their hilarious new work features original music, imaginative movement and a captivating use of technology designed to bring a smile to your face. Shiner and Irwin also co-created the Broadway hit Fool Moon, which ran through most of the '90s and racked up two Tonys, a Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards. A continuation of Fool Moon, the joyful Old Hats won the 2013 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Alternative Theatrical Experience and the 2013 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Revue. Irwin took home his Tonys for his dramatic role in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? along with Fool Moon, but he may be best known as Mr. Noodle from Elmo's World. Shiner not only originated the role of the Cat in the Hat from Broadway's Seussical, but he also wrote and directed Cirque du Soleil: KOOZA. This production features direction from Tina Landau, whose production of Saroyan's The Time of Your Life thrilled audiences in 2004. Learn More

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
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.
