“May the Lord smite me with it. And may I never recover.” –Tevye
As you may have been able to tell from the quote, I saw Fiddler on the Roof tonight. The production was put on by the local community theater, which puts on one play/musical per year.
It was a good production. I saw it at Mountain View High School this spring, and have seen the movie, but it is still worth going to see. As with any non-professional production, there were a few miscues, but it was a good show. I like Tevye’s wit, as seen above.
It was a bit hot, thhough, and one preson passed out, apparently from the heat, but it may also have had something ot do with a heart condition, based on something overheard near them. They stopped the play for about 15 minutes to deal with that, and cool the room down.
I leave you with another of Tevye’s bits of wisdom:
Villager: “An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.”
Tevye: “Very good. That way the whole world will be blind and toothless.”
