    What the critics had to say.....

    BRUCE WEBER for THE NEW YORK TIMES says, "Cheesily overwrought production." CLIVE BARNES for THE NEW YORK POST says, "The play's only fault is that in trying to humanize Golda Meir, Gibson has slightly diminished her with a shrugging comedy too stereotypical to be entirely lifelike." WILLIAM GIBSON for THE NEW YORK DAILY NEWS says, "Tovah Feldshuh...gives Golda extraordinary vigor and passion." LINDA WINER for NEWSDAY says, "A handsomely crafted, tough-minded story of a complex woman." MICHAEL SOMMERS for THE STAR LEDGER says, "A spellbinding performance."
