Tovah Feldshuh recreates her award-winning performance as Golda Meir in Golda’s Balcony, The Film, as this final masterpiece by the author of The Miracle Worker, William Gibson, makes its motion picture debut in 2019.
Golda’s Balcony, The Film (a cause célèbre in its day, beloved by Jewish leaders, and Broadway critics alike) tells of the rise of Golda Meir from a Russian schoolgirl to Prime Minister of Israel. In this film, her life is transformed into a cinematic event of overwhelming power and inspirational triumph. As a play on Broadway and off, the work sold out over 500 performances, becoming the longest-running, one-woman show in Broadway history.
Tovah Feldshuh’s galvanizing portrayal of Golda has been so dramatically edited and cinematically ‘put together,’ that audiences who may have originally adored the performance from the middle rows or upper tiers on Broadway may now ‘get up close and personal’ to Tovah’s marvelous work. Former Hadassah President June Walker perhaps put it best: “Run, don’t walk, to Golda’s Balcony, to spend an emotional hour and a half with one of the great women of history. Jews especially will be touched, but people of all religions will marvel at this triumph: it is not to be missed!”
Special guest: Tovah Feldshuh.
