Tovah Feldshuh, the theatre actress who is also at home in TV soaps and films, will make her London stage debut with her solo show, Tovah: Out of Her Mind!, for four performances Oct. 27 and Nov. 3 at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.
Feldshuh is seen in movie theatres as the title character's mother in "Kissing Jessica Stein." Her credits on the New York stage include Yentl, Sarava! and Lend Me a Tenor. She has received three Tony Award nominations, won four Drama Desk Awards, four Outer Critics Circle Awards, The Obie and the Theatre World Award.
Her most recent high-profile performance in New York was in the conceptual solo show, Tallulah Hallelujah!, which she co-wrote, Off-Broadway. In it, she sang, vamped and told raunchy and bittersweet tales as Tallulah Bankhead.
Tovah: Out of Her Mind! celebrates "all of Feldshuh's skills," according to the announcement — "as a stand-up comic, a writer, actress, dancer and singer in several different languages and styles. She creates a variety of characters aged 8 to 80 from Istanbul to the Bronx."
