TERRIFIC WITH A FEW EXCEPTIONS

I’m a long time Fiddler fan ... even played Lazar Wolf in high school. I loved how this production cast younger leads than other productions. That was more in keeping with the source material and made better sense considering the ages of the daughters. I was looking forward to the idea of having Tevye’s descendant opening and closing the show, but it just didn’t work. Casting was uneven. Secondary leads like the Constable, Rabbi, Lazar and Yente were Ok, but not memorable. Yente, the broadest, funniest, most beloved character was flat and blended into the background. Traditional huge laughs were hurried through and missed the mark. She even flubbed a line in the Gossip bit that the Tzeitel character had to help recover. In general, I found that many songs and key speeches were paced a little too fast, missing big laughs. On the positive side, I loved the big numbers like Sunrise, Sunset, the Dream Sequence and Chavala. The entire “To Life” scene was phenomenal

FIDDLER ON THE ROOF

Loved the 1st half of the show. Was very bored after intermission and disappointed to not see a better moment of the "fiddler". Felt like I didn't get my money's worth. We ( a friend & myself) left the show, which I had seen twice awhile back, feeling "That's it??"

FIDDLER ON THE ROOF

The cast was terrific but the actor that played Yenta was not a good fit. The first act was phenomenal from start to finish! The second act was a letdown. In total the show is well worth attending.
