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."

First inaugurated in 1951, Yom HaShoah is observed as a day of commemoration for the approximately six million Jews who perished in the Holocaust.

During the German occupation of Poland, Irena Gut Opdyke (Feldshuh), a Polish Catholic, was forced to work as head housekeeper for a very prominent German 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. The complete cast includes Sandi Carroll, Tracee Chimo, Steven Hauck, Scott Klavan, Peter Reznikoff, Thomas Ryan, Gene Silvers, John Stanisci and Maja Wampuszyc.

The performance schedule for Irena's Vow is as follows: Tuesday at 7:00 p.m., Wednesday -Saturday at 8:00 p.m., Wednesday & Saturday at 2:00 p.m., Sunday at 3:00 p.m. Tickets are $41.00 - $98.00 and are available at the box office of the Walter Kerr Theatre (219 West 48Street), by visiting Telecharge.com or by calling (212) 239-6200.
