    It's wonderful! I love all the music. Besides for the classic numbers, I find the dream scene very funny.

    Enjoy.

    We saw Fiddler at a community theater before we saw the movie and we always felt the play was much better. Still I love the movie, too. Hope you have a wonderful experience. Mazal tov.

    I've only seen the movie. It's an all time favorite at our house. At my 25th wedding anniversary we played "Do You Love Me?" We even some times quote it at our house. DH "If you ever stop talking I won't be late!" Me "You could die from such a man!" I even misquoted it to my oldest DSon when he was in college, "A job is not to like a job is to get."

    I'm home. The show was wonderful. We had great seats too! I'm so glad I got to go. Not many of the great shows come to this area.
    Got fabric?

    Love the movie and saw a dinner theater production of it quite a few years ago but I'm sure that Broadway will put both to shame. Hope it is everything you hope it will be - there is nothing like live theater!

    I saw it when it first debuted on Braodway way back in the late sixties. It was really wonderful, especially the dream scene.

    Glad you enjoyed the play. How did your daughters like it? (You said they weren't too keen on the idea.)

    I grew up with that play. The soundtrack was played at family gatherings, we sang the songs at summer camp. I didn't see the movie until I was a teenager, years after it first came out, but the people were so like the people in my (East European Jewish) community, that it felt very familiar.

    I haven't seen it in years. I'll have to see it this winter.

    The worst play is still better than movies. I love plays whether they're professional or local amatures. Dinner theater, opera, operetta, or high school play, I love them all.

    Oh, wait, DH was given tickets to a play once and we went to see it. It was horrible---f bombs every other word. We left. It was Kiss of the Spider Woman or something like that. About two lovers in prison---not good.

    If no one ever experimented we'd all still be making 4 patches.
