    Fiddler on the Roof

    I am going to see the Broadway musical tonight! It is one of my favorite movies and I can't wait to see the original musical. Each year before Christmas I get tickets to a Broadway production for my girls and me. I picked Fiddler this year. They aren't that convinced it was the best choice. LOL. Any one a fan of Fiddler on the Roof?
    Got fabric?

    LOVE IT. When my son was in Jr High his music teacher was making them play music they had never heard and couldn't relate to. So when I suggested she pick something they were familiar with, she picked a song from this movie and they all liked playing it.

    I love it!!! The depth of the characters, especially Papa, is amazing. It has it all. Great music, drama, comedy, love, courage. It is a wonderful film and I'm sure on stage will be just as magical.

    Most anything Broadway is good. Some better than others, but I love the music in Fiddler On The Roof. I'm envious of you. You all enjoy.

    Love the movie. Have not watched it for a long time. With the Christmas season I have to watch Scrooge first.

    Big fan! I got to see it with Topal (he was on broadway then in the movie) when it was in Detroit for I think the 50th anniversary. Saw it a few times in smaller theaters but of course broadway was great. Enjoy!

    Yes! One of my favorite oldies. There's no one like Tevah. Hope it's as good as you think it will be and I bet your kids will like it too. Eho can resist that music!

    It is one of my all-time favorites too. I saw it in San Francisco with my dad. He did the lead role in the play in a local theater when I was growing up and helping him learn his lines and attending rehearsals and performances remains one of my most cherished memories of my dad. It is a totally different experience seeing the musical live than watching the movie - you are in for one serious treat!
