Fall Fest Audience Favorite Award Winner!
When it opened Off-Broadway in 2003, GOLDA’S BALCONY sold out every show for 16 straight weeks. Six months later, Tovah Feldshuh’s triumphant performance as Golda Meir, the matriarch of Israel, premiered on Broadway and ran for 507 performances — making it the longest-running one-woman show in Broadway history! In this special limited-seating screening, you are invited to experience the power of Tovah Feldshuh’s portrayal of Golda Meir (as well as 45 other characters) on the big screen. You’ll not only have a front row seat to the show, you’ll be able to view the performance from angles and perspectives not even afforded to theatergoers themselves!
The rise of Golda Meir from Russian schoolgirl to Prime Minister of Israel is one of the most exhilarating stories of the 20th century ever told. Written by Tony Award winning playwright and novelist William Gibson (The Miracle Worker), the play sheds light on Golda’s leadership during the 1973 Yom Kippur War when Israel was attacked by Egypt and Syria and thousands of lives were at stake.
WINNER of 21 “Audience Favorite Awards” at all 21 of its competitive festivals to date, including the Jewish Film Festivals of Boston, L.A., Philadelphia, Tel Aviv, Pittsburgh, Dallas, Hong Kong and many others. Official Selection to 73 Film Festivals in total in 2019-2020!
Special Guest: David Fishelson | Producer of GOLDA’S BALCONY: THE FILM
