Feldshuh To Lead Broadway Candlelight Vigil On 4/21 For Holocaust Remembrance Day

Tovah Feldshuh, playwright Dan Gordon and the cast of Broadway's "Irena's Vow" will hold a candlelight vigil in commemoration of Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day). The vigil will take place April 21st at the Walter Kerr theatre immediately prior to that evening's performance of "Irena's Vow."

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. The complete cast includes Sandi Carroll, Tracee Chimo, Steven Hauck, Scott Klavan, Peter Reznikoff, Thomas Ryan, Gene Silvers, John Stanisci and Maja Wampuszyc.
