WHEN WILLIAM GIBSON'S PLAY ABOUT Golda Meir, Golda's Balcony, opens at the Hippodrome on Tuesday with Valerie Harper as its star, Baltimore audiences may experience a bit of deja vu. Nearly three decades ago, another Gibson play about the Israeli prime minister played a pre-Broadway run at the Mechanic Theatre.

It was not an event Gibson remembers fondly.

GOLDA'S BALCONY -- May 9-21 -- Hippodrome Theatre, 12 N. Eutaw St. -- $24-$64 -- 410-547-SEAT
