RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Broadway

Broadway applauded this reworking of the author's 1977 play into a complex one-woman tour-de-force. This tight-knit story of war and peace opens in 1973, on the eve of the Yom Kippur War, and uses flashbacks to let Golda tell the story of her life: her journey from her birthplace in Russia to the United States where she settled in Milwaukee, became a school teacher and married. She describes her role as a socialist Zionist, her emigration to Palestine in 1921, the birth of her two children and the breakup of her marriage. These details form an intriguing backdrop for a dramatic look at idealism, power and the strength it takes to shape the destiny of a nation.

REVIEWS

"Seldom has history embodied itself in one person as clearly as it did in Golda Meir...Gibson gives us a great understanding of Golda's personal and public life and conveys magnificently the fearlessness and dedication that made Golda so powerful a world leader.''" - New York Daily News

"Fascinating.'' - The New York Times 

"The acute tension between political convictions and personal commitments...continues to resonate. It's second to none." - Toronto Star, Read More


Golda's Balcomy premiered on Broadway at the Helen Hayes Theatre in October 2003 under the direction of Scott Schwartz.

Reads well. Getting it on its feet though feels monumental and there aren't many actors who could tackle something like this. You need a highly experienced actor with chops who can sustain an audience's interest for 90 minutes.
