Tovah Feldshuh, 74, is an actress, singer, and playwright. She’s been a Broadway star for 50 years, earning four Tony Award nominations. She has also received two Emmy Award nominations for Holocaust and Law & Order, and appeared in such films as A Walk on the Moon, She’s Funny That Way, and Kissing Jessica Stein. Her many Broadway credits include Saravá, Lend Me a Tenor, and Golda’s Balcony, William Gibson’s work about the late Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir. Golda’s Balcony set a record as the longest-running one-woman play in Broadway history on January 2, 2005.
Quote: “She [Golda Meir] was a feminist without knowing anything about the women’s movement… I love that she refused to flaunt her position. She flew coach and washed out her own underwear. Even though I may wash out my own underwear, I’m still in a suite of rooms and I don’t fly coach. I understand her. And what’s great about it is, I get to play her. I don’t have to live her life.”
