News   Tovah Feldshuh Will Step Back Onto Golda's Balcony
 
Four-time Tony Award nominee Tovah Feldshuh will bring her acclaimed performance as Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir in William Gibson's Golda's Balcony to PlayhouseSquare's Palace Theatre in Cleveland Jan. 29, 2011.

The one-night-only performance will begin at 7:30 PM.

Scott Schwartz will supervise the one-woman play, which earned Feldshuh a Tony nomination and was, for a period, the longest-running one-woman show in Broadway history.

The play is described in press notes as "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 Israel in the 20th Century."

Feldshuh received Tony nominations for her work in Golda's Balcony, Lend Me a Tenor, Sarava and Yentl, as well as four Drama Desk Awards, four Outer Critics Circle Awards, an Obie and a Lucille Lortel Award (the latter for Golda's Balcony, for which she also won a Drama Desk Award). Other credits include Rodgers and Hart; The Three Sisters; Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh; the miniseries "Holocaust" (Emmy nomination); and the films "Kissing Jessica Stein" and "A Walk on the Moon," among many others.

The Palace Theatre is located at 1615 Euclid Avenue in Cleveland. For tickets, call (216) 241-6000 or visit playhousesquare.org.
