Feldshuh appeared on the stage under the name Terri Fairchild before reverting to Tovah, her Hebrew name.

Feldshuh made her cabaret debut at the Algonquin Hotel Oak Room with her act Tovah: Crossovah! From Broadway to Cabaret, which was followed by Tovah: Out of Her Mind!, which she took on the road to Philadelphia, Houston, Dallas, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Hong Kong, and Sydney. The West End production sold out an eight-week run at the Duke of York's Theatre. The Boston Globe selected her as "Best Cabaret Artist of 2000"
