Cast members from the upcoming Broadway production of Dan Gordon's Irena's Vow met the press at a Feb. 18 photo op.
Irena's Vow, according to press notes, "is the uplifting true story about one of the most courageous and unsung heroines of World War II. During the German occupation of Poland, Irena Gut Opdyke, a Polish Catholic, was forced to work as head housekeeper for a very prominent Nazi major. Over a two year period of service, Irena would risk her own life in order to save the lives of twelve Jewish refugees whom she secretly took under her care. Irena's Vow is the extraordinary story of one woman's choice and the twelve lives that would ultimately be saved – or lost - by her decision."
Tovah Feldshuh leads a cast that includes Sandi Carroll, Tracee Chimo, Steven Hauck, Scott Klavan, Peter Reznikoff, Thomas Ryan, Gene Silvers, John Stanisci and Maja Wampuszyc. Michael Parva directs.
Irena's Vow is scheduled to begin performances at the Walter Kerr Theatre March 10.
