Travel on the Golden Roads of Golda Meir. We are honored to travel on the Golden Roads of Golda Meir. Our new musical is taking us on a journey as bookings keep coming in. The musical has a strong parallel to The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. There is one main difference, however. For Dorothy, in the Wiz, the Yellow Brick Road led to Oz. The wizard would in turn would lead her home. In our Golda one-woman musical, the Golden Roads are home sweet home.
|Yellow brick road|
The road is first introduced in the third chapter of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. The road begins in the heart of the eastern quadrant called Munchkin Country in the Land of Oz. It functions as a guideline that leads all who follow it. The road’s ultimate destination is the imperial capital of Oz. It is called Emerald City . It is at exact center of the continent.
In a similar way, Jerusalem is thought of as the center of the world in many traditions. Golda Meir helped pave the way for thousands of immigrants after World War II. Golda Meir’s Golden Roads were real. In Parliament she helped pass the Golden Wegen (Golden Roads) Initiative of 1949. She wanted Israel to not only have roads, but that they be beautiful. They had to have trees and flowers. This is most remarkable for a desert-like country. It just had had swamps, sand and rock for terrain.
