BWW TV Show Preview: Irena's Vow
Four-time Tony Award-nominee Tovah Feldshuh has returned to the New York stage in Irena's Vow, a new play by Dan Gordon, now running at Baruch Performing Arts Center - 55 Lexington Avenue @ 25th Street (between Lexington & Third Aves). The new drama marks Ms. Feldshuh's first New York stage appearance since her triumphant (and Tony Award-nominated) turn in Golda's Balcony (Broadway's longest-running one-woman show). BroadwayWorld is pleased to bring you these stirring highlights!
Irena's Vow, which is being presented by The Directors Company in association with Power Productions & The Polish Cultural Institute, is an Invictus Theatre Company World premiere.
Featuring a cast of ten, Irena's Vow is a riveting, life affirming story about one of wartime's most courageous and unsung heroines. During the Nazi 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 be confronted with the choice to protect twelve Jewish refugees who secretly fell under her care. This is the extraordinary true story of one woman's choice and the twelve lives that would live or die by her decision.
The performance schedule for Irena's Vow is as follows: Mondays at 8 p.m., Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m., with matinees on Saturdays and Sundays at 3 p.m. All tickets are $55 and are available at the Baruch Performing Arts Center box office. Student Rush tickets ($25) will be available one hour before the show.
