Broadway Star Tovah Feldshuh
Performs at AA Synaogue March 30

2014 February 24

Broadway star Tovah Feldshuh, who recently starred in the 2013 Tony Award-winning revival of “Pippin,” will give a special matinee performance of  her song-and-dance cabaret “Tovah: Out of Her Mind!” in honor of Ambassador Stuart Eizenstat. The gala, titled “Stu, Long Overdue,” celebrates Eizenstat’s decades of service to his native city and his family’s long-standing commitment to Ahavath Achim Synagogue.

In her one-woman show, four-time Tony nominee (“Golda’s Balcony,” “Yentl,” “Lend Me a Tenor” and “Saravà!”) Feldshuh portrays a number of characters and sings Broadway tunes by the Gershwins and Jules Styne. The Boston Globe selected “Tovah: Out Of Her Mind!” as the best one-person show of 2000.

In addition to performing in a dozen Broadway shows, Feldshuh has acted in numerous films, including “Kissing Jessica Stein,” for which she won the Golden Satellite Award for Best Supporting Actress, and “A Walk On The Moon” with Diane Lane. Her portrayal of Israel’s iconic Prime Minister, Golda Meir, in “Golda’s Balcony,” was the longest-running, one-woman show in Broadway history.

“Stu, Long Overdue” will be held Sunday, March 30 at Ahavath Achim Synagogue’s Main Sanctuary in Buckhead at 2 p.m. Feldshuh is expected to perform at 2:30 p.m. Tickets will likely sell out fast as they did last year when Feldshuh narrated last year’s AA Synagogue’s 125th Year Celebration.
