Fiddler on the Roof

Wow. This is all I can say when it comes to Fiddler on the Roof at the Orpheum: Wow. Fiddler at the Orpheum was amazing.

Fiddler is the story of a poor milkman, Tevye, and his family–his wife Golde and their five daughters. Five daughters. As his three oldest girls find men in their lives and fall in love, Tevye must decide whether he will let his daughters marry the men of their choice, or fall back on the tradition of their Jewish community in Anatevka. Throughout the musical, the basis of tradition is met with new ideas, such as radicalism, and love. Fiddler is clever, funny, and heartfelt. Since I know the story, I was very excited to see the play. I wasn’t disappointed.
