Broadway in Cincinnati Welcomes Fiddler On the Roof (review)

**Thanks to the PR firm who provided complimentary tickets to view the show in exchange for my review following the show. I received no other compensation. The thoughts and opinions shared are mine and mine alone. Others may disagree.**

Ladies and Gentlemen, as my new friend Yente would say, "I have such news for you!"
You're all invited to a wedding! Yes, there will be a wedding all wrapped up in a very sweet time of deep tradition and family values.




FIDDLER ON THE ROOF has arrived in Cincinnati's Aronoff Center for shows from January 15-27 (2019).

I had the pleasure of attending opening night of this production last night and had such a great time. The cast brought to life everything we know and love of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF. The music, the dancing, the lighthearted moments, and family values came through in rich tones that kept me sitting comfortably as their story was unfolding. The characters quickly felt like family friends and I found myself admiring the similarities and differences between us.

FIDDLER ON THE ROOF is a celebration of traditions and the way things used to be for a specific group of people. The story is captivating and vulnerable as viewers are invited to see life through a different lens in a different time and place. I left appreciating some of my own values in a new way, inspired to grow individually, and laughing (still) at some of the scenes that had the whole audience in stitches.

I have to call out Tevye, played by Yehezkel Lazarov, as the extra twinkle in the spotlight last night. Lazarov had an uncanny similarity to Chaim Topol, who played Tevye in the movie production of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF. He was larger than life, with a bit of clever wit and endearment tucked beneath the brim of his cap. Lazarov was made for the role he played and deserved the standing ovation he received at the curtain call.
