Only one choice.
Following a triumphant sold-out engagement, four-time Tony Award® nominee Tovah Feldshuh returns to Broadway this spring in the critically acclaimed, tremendously moving new play, Irena's Vow.
Featuring a cast of ten, Irena's Vow is the riveting, life-affirming story about one of the most courageous and unsung heroines of World War II.
During the German occupation of Poland, Irena Gut Opdyke, a Polish Catholic, was forced to work as head housekeeper for a prominent German major.
Over a two-year period of service, Irena would risk her own life in order to protect the lives of twelve Jewish refugees whom she secretly took under her care.
Irena's Vow is the extraordinary true story of one woman's choice and the twelve lives that would ultimately be saved - or lost - by her decision.
Irena's Vow marks Tovah Feldshuh's first return to the New York stage since her incomparable performance in Golda's Balcony.
