IRENA'S VOW Opening Night Tix Donated To Benefit Actors Fund

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 The Walter Kerr Theatre. 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). Michael Parva directs. 

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 Actors Fund, a nonprofit human services organization founded in 1882, serves all professionals - and not just actors! - in film, theater, television, music, opera, and dance through programs that address their unique and essential needs. As a national organization with offices in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago, The Fund directly serves over 8,000 entertainment and performing arts professionals across the country, and approximately 300,000 more through Web resource programs. In providing care and service to professionals throughout the industry, The Fund's programs are wide in scope, responsive in nature, and produce significant results, affecting the lives of people in our community year after year.

Employment in any division of the entertainment and performing arts industry is unpredictable. The Life of an entertainment professional is very similar to any worker or independent contractor that moves from job to job to make their living. Work is erratic, security is fleeting and health insurance is often just a dream. For all of these reasons and many more, The Actors Fund is an indispensable and deeply significant part of the entire entertainment community.
