Review: “Golda’s Balcony” at Civic


Last Wednesday morning I snuck in with two groups of private high school students to see “Golda’s Balcony” at the Indianapolis Civic Theatre. This one-person show starring Miki Mathioudakis as Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir was written by William Gibson and directed at Civic by Robert J. Sorbera.

It is a beautiful and inspiring piece, brimming with historical information about a fascinating country and personal information about a fascinating woman. It takes place near the end of Meir’s life. She invites us to remember with her Israel’s process towards independence and her own. Both involved heartache and sacrifice. Both left me weeping.
