The one-woman show plays the Helen Hayes Theatre, 240 W. 44th Street. Feldshuh received Tony Award nominations for her work in Yentl, Sarava and Lend Me a Tenor. Her theatre roles have also garnered the actress four Drama Desk Awards (including one for Golda's Balcony), four Outer Critics Circle Awards, an Obie and a Theatre World Award.

The Jan. 23 broadcast will also pay tribute to the late Dorothy Loudon, the Tony-winning actress-singer who lost her battle with cancer Nov. 15.
