Dany Margolies – Arts In LA
The score of the classic Fiddler on the Roof is among American musical theater’s best. In this production, the music and lyrics get top-tier treatment. But the direction misses opportunities, while so tightly cramming performers into scenes that the audience may fear for the performers’ safety. Among those squandered elements, a too-glib protagonist and his happy-go-lucky wife fail to develop any historical and personal gravitas.
