Bay Street Th ater & Sag Har­bor Cen­ter for the Arts is pleased to an­nounce that To­vah Feld­shuh will per­form her cabaret and com­edy show Ag­ing is Op­tional on Satur­day, Au­gust 5 at 8 pm.

From Peter Pan to Pip­pin, from The Walk­ing Dead to Crazy Ex-Girl­friend, To­vah Feld­shuh brings her ar­se­nal of tal­ent to her new act. This 6 time Tony and Emmy nom­i­nee crosses gen­der and time zones with songs by Ca­role King, Dar Wil­liams, Bob Dy­lan, and more in Ag­ing is Op­tional , an age-de­fy­ing romp. She tells hi­lar­i­ous tales and re­veals se­crets from the sets of The Walk­ing Dead and Crazy Ex-Girl­friend. Some peo­ple call them decades, Ms. Feld­shuh calls them her col­lected works.

"Ag­ing is Op­tional is a booster for the soul and a pro­bi­otic for the heart," says Ms. Feld­shuh.

To­vah Feld­shuh has had 3 years im­mersed in tele­vi­sion. She re­cently fin shed play­ing Deanna Mon­roe, head of Alexan­dria, in the run­away hit Th Walk­ing Dead for AMC. She can also be seen on Starz as Rus­sian Bal­let Mis­tress, Ivana, in the minis­eries Flesh & Bone. Most re­cently, she was tapped to play Naomi Bunch, mother of Re­becca in the Golden Globe-win­ning hit, Crazy Ex-Girl­friend on the CW, where she can be seen singing the dig­ni­fied show­stop­per: "Where's the Bath­room!"

You may re­mem­ber her for her Emmy Nom­i­nated work as de­fense at­tor­ney Danielle Mel­nick in Law & Or­der or her por­trayal of Czech Free­dom Fighter, He­lena Slo­mova, in NBC's Holo­caust for which she re­ceived her sec­ond nom­i­na­tion. She has starred op­po­site Tommy Lee Jones in The Amaz­ing Howard Hughes, James Woods in Cit­i­zen Cohn, Bill Cosby on The Cosby Mys­ter­ies and Th Cosby Show, Richard Drey­fuss in The Ed­u­ca­tion of Max Bick­ford, and Piper Per­abo in USA's Covert Aff irs.

Last sea­son on Broad­way, Ms. Feld­shuh stopped the show as the trapeze-swing­ing Berthe in the Tony Award-win­ning mu­si­cal re­vival of Pip­pin. Prior to that, she played Lady Politic in the ac­claimed re­vival of Ben Jon­son's Volpone at the Lu­cille Lor­tel Th atre. As Ja­son Zi­no­man of The New York Times raved, "No one earns more laughs than the marvelous To­vah Feld­shuh. Her diva-like fl ur­ishes are pre­cisely timed, her en­trances and ex­its de­signed for max­i­mum im­pact."

For her other work on the New York stage, from Yentl to Sar­ava! and Lend Me a Tenor to Golda's Bal­cony and Irena's Vow, she has earned four Tony nom­i­na­tions for Best Ac­tress and won four Drama Desk Awards, four Outer Crit­ics Cir­cle Awards, the Obie, the The atre World Award and the Lu­cille Lor­tel Award for Best Ac­tress. On Oc­to­ber 3, 2004, Golda's Bal­cony, which was di­rected by Bay Street's Artis­tic Di­rec­tor Scott Schwartz, be­came the long­est-run­ning one-woman show in the his­tory of Broad­way, a record it still holds. Since then, Ms. Feld­shuh toured Golda to Los An­ge­les, San Fran­cisco, Lon­don, At­lanta, Ft. Laud­erdale, Palm Beach, Buf­fal , San Diego's Old Globe, where she was hon­ored the Th atre Crit­ics Cir­cle Award for Out­stand­ing Per­for­mance, and Wash­ing­ton D.C.'s Th ater J, where she won the He­len Hayes Award for Best Ac­tress.
