Irena's Vow, with Tovah Feldshuh, Begins Broadway Previews tonight, March 10

I'm sorry to say that I missed Tovah Feldshuh's last smash hit on Broadway "Golda's Balcony". Well you can be sure I'm going to catch her this go around after reading some of her rave reviews from out of town. The Directors Company production of "Irena's Vow", which played an extended engagement at the Baruch Performing Arts Center in fall 2008, arrives on Broadway with its original star — four-time Tony nominee Tovah Feldshuh — March 10 at the Walter Kerr Theatre.
The entire company — including Sandi Carroll, Tracee Chimo, Steven Hauck, Scott Klavan, Peter Reznikoff, Thomas Ryan, Gene Silvers, John Stanisci and Maja Wampuszyc — now reprise their work for Broadway audiences.
Irena's Vow, according to press notes, "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 (Feldshuh), a Polish Catholic, 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."
Tovah Feldshuh received Tony Award nominations for her work in Golda's Balcony, Yentl, Sarava and Lend Me a Tenor. Her theatre roles have also garnered the actress four Drama Desk Awards, four Outer Critics Circle Awards, an Obie and a Theatre World Award. In other words, she's one heck of a performer!
