Irena's Vow set to Open at the Walter Kerr Theatre on Broadway

Let me begin with full disclosure; I love Tovah Feldshuh. I have loved her since my tortured junior high school days. I would love her in a box, I would love her in her socks. I just love her. From the things that I've read about the out of town tryout, Tovah Feldshuh is giving an extraordinarily moving performance in Dan Gordon’s new play, “Irena’s Vow.” It is an acting turn that in some respects even tops her tour de force as Golda Meir. This time she is playing the real life character Irena Gut Opdyke, a Polish Catholic, who saved 12 refugee Jews from the Nazis at great risk and personal sacrifice. Feldshuh brings the character to life convincingly and powerfully in a great portrayal.

Irena's Vow on BroadwayPreviews: March 10, 2009
Opening: March 29, 2009
Venue: Walter Kerr Theatre, 219 West 48th Street, New York, NY 10036

Tovah Feldshuh stars as a real-life Polish Catholic who endeavors to save a dozen Jewish refugees during World War II. Irena's Vow is the uplifting true story about one of the most courageous and unsung heroines of World War II. During the German occupation of Poland, Irena Gut Opdyke was forced to work as head housekeeper for a very prominent Nazi major. Over a two year period of service, Irena would risk her own life in order to save the lives of twelve Jewish refugees whom she secretly took under her care. Irena's Vow is the extraordinary story of one woman's choice and the twelve lives that would ultimately be saved – or lost - by her decision.
