We enjoyed it.

CLASSIC SHOW

I thought this performance was wonderful. A few new touches but mostly just a strong, classic revival. A show all about tradition probably shouldn’t be done any other way. Tevye was fabulous, as was Mottel and the daughters. Dancing was excellent. For those who doync the second act slowed, that’s just how the show was written.

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.

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

ALWAYS A FAVORITE

Overall I loved the production. I saw it at the Fox Theater in St Louis last night. The opening number was magnificent as was the dream sequence. The singing of the main characters was very good particularly the performer who played Hodel. I did, however, wish they had mixed more volume and bass in the male leads. I was disappointed in the bar scene as I did not feel that the costumes or choreography made it very clear that there were the distinctly two factions of townspeople participating. I also felt like they should have done a bit of padding in the Golde costume and made her look a bit older. Set design was good albeit a bit distracting with so many chorus characters constantly moving trees, etc while other dialogue is going on. Orchestration was wonderful as always with the Fox orchestra.
