Fiddler on the Roof

Fiddler on the Roof, a musical by Joseph Stein, was the first play I ever acted in. I played every song on the piano and watched the film over and over again. So, it was only natural that my mother accompany me to the new Broadway play. I played a Yeshiva boy and yenta, by the way, and I was happy to see females playing males in this version. The show is about tradition and a Jewish village grappling with change, revolving around a milkman and his wife and five daughters. The combination of stage greats Danny Burstein and Jessica Hecht, a first rate cast and a faithful retelling of this famous story makes it more relevant than ever. There’s a direct parallel going on between the story of the Jews of Anatevka and the story of the refugees today. And the fiddler that follows the cast of characters from start to finish is both dazzling and haunting. Get ticket info here: fiddlermusical.com.
