“Golda’s Balcony,” William Gibson’s Tony award-winning one-woman play, will be presented on Zoom as part of the Lifelong Learning Collaborative’s special presentation series on March 14 from 1:30 -3:30 p.m.
Written in 2003, “Golda’s Balcony” is a 90-minute play filled with humor, pathos and passion. It still holds the record as the longest-running one-woman show in Broadway history. We see Golda Meir’s journey from impoverished child in Czarist Russia to Israel’s fourth Prime Minister, scrambling to save the country from impending destruction during the 1973 Yom Kippur War.
The play stars award-winning actress and veteran teacher Sandra Laub. Laub has been performing Golda’s Balcony to critical acclaim and heartfelt audience response since 2013. She has acted in dozens of professional productions. Her off-Broadway credits include Circle Rep, WPA, Dance Theater Workshop, Equity Library Theater, Ensemble Studio Theater, La Mama, and Joseph Papp’s Shakespeare in the Park (Richard III with Kevin Kline.) In Rhode Island, she performed at Perishable Theater, the Brown Summer Theater Festival, the Sandra Feinstein-Gamm Theater, The Granite Theater, Courthouse for the Arts, The Island Theater Company and 2nd Story Theater.
The Lifelong Learning Collaborative is an independent Providence-based peer-run adult continuing education organization.
