4-time Tony Award nominated actress Tovah Feldshuh recreates 100 years of Jewish history playing 45 different characters (including Ben-Gurion, Moshe Dayan, Holocaust survivors, Israeli soldiers and, of course, Golda Meir herself), in one of the greatest acting performances of the last 50 years—now captured on film for all time, in this brand new motion picture, Golda’s Balcony, The Film. Never has the whole Jewish century been dramatized with such heart, dazzle, and sheer jaw-dropping artistry, than in this 85-minute movie. Read more here.
