`Golda' acting is a rock-solid performance

Theater Review

Her husband complains that loving her is "like loving the rock of Gibraltar." Her public thinks of her as "Mommile Golda who makes chicken soup for her soldiers."

Both descriptions of Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir are given credence in William Gibson's Golda's Balcony. But the rock is the image most consistently conveyed by Valerie Harper in this one-woman show at the Hippodrome Theatre.

Golda's Balcony Through May 21 at the Hippodrome Theatre, 12 N. Eutaw St. $24-$64. 410-547-SEAT
