Tovah Feldshuh will recreate her award-winning performance as Golda Meir in William Gibson' s Golda's Balcony at The Old Globe Theatre in San Diego, running April 28 - May 30. The production replaces the previously announced What You Will, starring Roger Rees, which has been postponed due to Rees' scheduling conflicts. Scott Schwartz, who directed the original Off-Broadway and Broadway productions of Golda's Balcony, will act as production consultant for the San Diego engagement.

The solo play is a portrait of Meir, the Milwaukee schoolteacher who became Prime Minister of Israel in 1969.

Feldshuh was most recently seen on Broadway in Irena's Vow. She earned one of four Tony Award nominations for her performance in Golda's Balcony. Her other nominations were for her work in Lend Me a Tenor, Yentl, and Sarava. Her other stage credits include Tovah: Out of Her Mind!, Tallulah Hallelujah!, Mining Golda: My Journey to Golda Meir, as well as the cabaret piece, Tovah: In a Nutshell. She received her first Emmy Award for her performance in Holocaust and a second for her work as Danielle Melnick on Law & Order. Feldshuh will be appearing at The Old Globe as the 2010 Shiley Artist-in-Residence. Her previous credits with the theater include The Country Wife, Measure for Measure, Romeo and Juliet and The Two Gentlemen of Verona.

The creative team will include Anna Louizos (scenic consultant), Jess Goldstein (costume consultant), Jeff Croiter (lighting design), Alex Hawthorn (sound design), Mark Bennett (original Broadway sound design), and Batwin and Robin Productions, Inc. (projection design).
