Golda's Balcony, William Gibson's one-woman play about Israeli Prime Minister Gold Meir, begins a run at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego April 28. Four-time Tony Award nominee Tovah Feldshuh recreates her Tony Award-nominated Broadway turn, directed again by Scott Schwartz.

Opening is May 1. Performances continue to May 30. The production replaces an engagement of Roger Rees' solo show, What You Will, which was scrapped "due to unforeseen conflicts with Roger Rees' schedule."

Golda's Balcony earned Feldshuh a Tony Award nomination for Best Actress, and is the longest running one-woman show in Broadway history.

Golda's Balcony "follows the trajectory of the life of Golda Meir from Russian immigrant to American schoolteacher to a leader of international policies as the fourth Prime Minister of Israel," according to Old Globe notes. "Tovah Feldshuh delivers a tour de force portrait of Meir in William Gibson's (The Miracle Worker, Two for the Seesaw) award-winning drama. 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."

An associate artist of The Old Globe, Tovah Feldshuh has previously appeared at the Globe in The Country Wife, Measure for Measure, Romeo and Juliet and The Two Gentlemen of Verona. She has earned four Tony Award nominations for Best Actress and won four Drama Desk Awards, four Outer Critics Circle Awards, the Obie, the Theatre World Award and the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Actress for her work on the New York stage, from Yentl to Saravà! to Lend Me a Tenor to Golda's Balcony.

Soon after the Broadway run of Golda's Balcony, Feldshuh brought her Golda to Los Angeles, San Francisco and London. She then starred in New York as Polish Christian rescuer Irena Gut Opdyke in Dan Gordon's Irena's Vow.
