Four-time Tony-nominee Tovah Feldshuh has signed on to appear in a reading of Dancing with Giants, a new stage work written by her brother, Pulitzer finalist and Department of Performing and Media Arts professor David Feldshuh (Miss Evers' Boys). The reading will be held at Congregation Rodeph Shalom in Philadelphia on November 14 at 7:00 p.m.
Dancing with Giants explores the survival of an incongruous and remarkable friendship of three very different men: Max Schmeling, the German boxing champion and Hitler's favorite boxer; Joe Louis, the American Boxing Champion; and Joe “Yussel the Muscle" Jacobs (to be played by Tovah Feldshuh), a small-time, wise-cracking Jewish boxing manager.
