The longest running one-woman show in Broadway history, Golda's Balcony tells the incredible true story of Golda Meir, Israel's first female prime minister. Four-time Tony Award nominee Tovah Feldshuh reprises her tour-de-force performance in this deeply funny and frighteningly prescient drama by William Gibson (The Miracle Worker). One of the most influential people of the twentieth century, Meir rose from Russian immigrant to American schoolteacher to the epicenter of international politics in a career that culminated with the 1973 Yom Kippur War.

Too much time was spent on the imagined fantasy appearances of Jerry Siegel's unacknowledged son and on the imagined role of Superman comics that the playwrite speculated could have occured in the Nazi concentration camps.
As an owner of an original Superman comic book and a fan of the Superman radio show with Bud Collyer in the late 30s, I wish the play would have included more about the radio program and the tv show and movie whose Superman actors were cursed with tragic demises.
Learning that the co-authors had signed away their Superman ownership reminded me of my own loss by the tossing by an older brother of my orignal Superman, Batman, Captain Marvel and other comic books.
This production contains brief, modest nudity.
June 21 will be open-captioning night.
