William Gibson's acclaimed play "Golda's Balcony" is coming to Playhouse on Park. Beginning with previews on May 16th and opening officially on May 18th, "Golda's Balcony" tells the inspiring tale of Golda Meir. From an impoverished child in Russia to the Prime Minister of Israel, Meir's life was filled with the mystery and breathtaking drama that makes for an intimate and compelling one-woman show.
Kate Alexander (Golda's Balcony, Master Class, The Play about The Baby, The Goat, Filumena, Three Tall Women, and most recently, Edward Albee's Occupant. (Florida Studio Theatre)) stars as the phenomenon herself, Golda Meir.
Director Terence Lamude (Remembrance (John Houseman Theatre), Away Alone, Poor Beat in the Rain, Famine, and I Do Not Like Thee Doctor Fell (Irish Arts Center)) brings to life this beloved play that invites you into the heart and mind of one of the 20th Century's great leaders.
The play opens officially on Friday May 18th, 2012 and will be followed by a complimentary wine and cheese reception for patrons to enjoy from 7:00pm to 8:00pm. Also, following our performance on Sunday, May 20th, audience members are invited to participate in a Talk Back with the production star, Kate Alexander.
