    She started out downplaying her Judaism by using the stage name Terri Fairchild, then did a 180 by adopting the Hebrew name Tovah.
    She titled one of her cabaret revues 'Tovah Crossovah!'
    She complained that Hollywood considered her too aggressive, too intelligent and not pretty enough.
    She claims that for non-Jewish roles, 'I had to be twice as good as anybody else just to get in the door.'
    Her performance as Golda Meir in 'Golda's Balcony' set a record for longest-running one woman show on Broadway.
    She received the Eleanor Roosevelt Humanities Award and the Israeli Peace Medal for her charity work.
    She said, 'Here I am, halfway through my career, more than a quarter century on and off Broadway, and I can say I'm proud of 98 percent of my work.'
