SAN DIEGO–Executive Producer Lou Spisto announced that due to unforeseen conflicts with Roger Rees’ schedule, The Old Globe’s upcoming production of What You Will has been replaced with Golda’s Balcony starring four-time Tony Award nominee Tovah Feldshuh.
Written by William Gibson and supervised by Scott Schwartz, 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 will run in the Old Globe Theatre April 28 – May 30. Previews run April 28 – May 1. Opening night is Saturday, May 1 at 7 p.m. .
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. 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.
