With humor, pathos, and passion, we see her journey from impoverished child in Czarist Russia to becoming Israel’s 4th Prime Minister
Sedona AZ (April 16, 2021) – Emerson Theater Collaborative and Sedona Arts Academy presents GOLDA’S BALCONY Written by William Gibson. Directed and performed by Sandra Laub. Sandra Laub, an award-winning actress and veteran teacher, has been performing William Gibson’s Tony Award-winning one-woman play, Golda’s Balcony, in a variety of settings—theaters, classrooms, social halls, sanctuaries—to critical acclaim and heartfelt audience response since 2013.
Golda’s Balcony is a 90-minute tour-de force. With humor, pathos, and passion, we see her journey from impoverished child in Czarist Russia to becoming Israel’s 4th Prime Minister scrambling to save the country from impending destruction during the 1973 Yom Kippur War. At the heart of the play is Meir’s lifelong struggle to attain peace while agonizing over difficult moral choices, including especially the ‘terrible question’: “What happens when idealism becomes power?” A collaboration with the Jewish Community of Sedona and the Verde Valley Synagogue.
What others are saying:
“Laub maintains outstanding energy and enthusiasm for the entire 90-minute production and she creates a perceptible connection with her audience. She also brings any number of other characters to life through imitation and parody, including a spot-on impression of Henry Kissinger…“Laub nuances her portrayal … gingerly moving through the staging and believably aging her vocal performance, while letting glimpses of Golda’s playfulness and determination bleed through. “ Veronica Bruscini, Broadway World
