Whiskey Tango Foxtrot & Fiddler on the Roof
Last night, we had the extreme pleasure of seeing Fiddler on the Roof at the Arizona Broadway Theatre, and again, they just keep getting better and better, more and more professional, more and more a joy to visit the best theatre in the Valley, maybe in the state, maybe in all states west of the Mississippi. Well, that last may be a stretch, but they’re certainly good. As we were leaving, the cast members were standing in the lobby to say goodbye to us. I made a point of finding Jason Simon, who played Tevye. I shook his hand and told him that Zero Mostel would be proud. I hope he understood what I was saying; I’m sure he must have seen a video of Zero Mostel doing the original Tevye on Broadway. I wanted him to know that his Tevye was every bit as good as Zero’s. In fact, I can’t imagine any theatre group anywhere, including Broadway, doing Fiddler any better. The sets were innovative, the lighting flawless, the costumes accurate, the pit band excellent, the choreography nearer and nearer to professional (especially the three Russians doing the crossed-arms-floor kicks and the slow dance with bottles on top of the head), the voices as good as anyone could want. And Tevye was large as life, both in girth and voice. I guess the only other positive comment I can make is that the dinner was fabulous, pretty much in line with the excellence of this Fiddler on the Roof.
