Fiddler on the Roof, by Sheldon Harnick and Jerry Bock
mediocrity.
Tuesday, June 5, 2007
3.0
I came to see the sunset cast last weekend, and found the singing and acting to be VERY mediocre. I was a little suprised at the casting of this show the only decent singers were Tevye and Motel. The 3 older daughters were all on pitch but the tones of their voices were like fingernails on a chalkboard, also, the couples looked ridiculous together.The woman who played Golde had ZERO personality, she could have tried an accent or something. It didnt seem like she tried to become the character, it was bizzare.

One positive, the sets were nice and so was the costuming, very period. The score wasnt half bad either, and i liked the costumed musicians. VERY nice touch.

I can def. give a round of applause to the man who played Tevye-he rose above and BEYOND his mediocre castmates and COMPLETELY captured his character. I was VERY impressed by his acting and singing abilities(bravo. I also liked Motel, though his choreography didnt quite seem to fit( a little too much "jazzhands")he had a good voice and gave it his all. The girl who played Tzeitel was very bland and not memorable.

I think the people who were in this show that want to do theatre as a career-please do something else.
This was a poor excuse for a show if i've ever seen one (which i have)
