One of the joys of Fiddler of the Roof is its familiarity, and the production currently playing at the National Theater did not disappoint.
If you grew up like me, you know every word already, but the actors brought new energy to the performance. The elaborate set was evocative of the shtetl and the singing was flawless. The men’s dancing during the party scenes was particularly fun to watch. My only quibble is that the actresses portraying unmarried girls and women wore head coverings, which is not accurate.
Fiddler may take place during a specific time and place, but its message about the struggle of parents struggling to send their children into a strange and changing world is timeless.
Fiddler on the Roof is playing through December 15th. Tickets start at $54.00.
Catch it while you can!
