Golda's Balocony

"Golda's Balcony" was written in 2003, by William Gibson. The play continues to hold the record as the longest-running one-woman show in Broadway history. From Brad Hevenor IndependentRI.com, April 2015: "Sandra Laub exudes power in a masterful and spellbinding solo performance as Golda Meir, Israel's fourth prime minister. While Laub captures Meir's physical presence and Midwest-meets-Yiddish voice perfectly, the real strength of the performance is how authentically the transformations in place and time are rendered."
