A most enthusiastic cast, with superb dancers. The new choreography and staging is far better than the original. The Israeli actor playing Tevye is astonishing good as an actor and singer - and I’ve seen Zero Mostel and others play this role. Alas, Golde, his wife, lacks soul, never captures that Jewish mother/wife essence under the hardness. Yenta is terrible; shocking she was cast. The oldest daughter is excellent; the youngest can act but lacks the voice. The rabbi and other men also lack voice power and/or acting chops. Still, go see it, for Tevye and the dancing! You will cry and fall in love with the show again, anyway.

PACE WAS TOO QUICK
From the start, I thought Tevye who ended up being quite good, was talking to quickly, missing important places for emphasis on several important places... did not use space as a dramatic opportunity. A slower more poignant presentation of lines for Tevya and Golda could have been useful. I have seen Fiddler at least 4-5 times. Love the play and have tears each time. GREAT Dancing.

I saw the show on Tuesday night. It was excellent. The dancing and singing were very good. However, the lead actor was a poor speaker.
He ran through his lines rapidly and without expression or punctuation. Many times I did not catch what he was saying. That's a big flaw in the otherwise superb performance. And it made both the beginning and ending much less

Excellent story! Love Papa, he’s my favorite character. One thing, it was a lovely gesture to dedicate the last dance to Ukraine, but you forgot about Palestine! 🇵🇸

WOULD HAVE BEEN 5 STARS EXCEPT
I've seen this show many many times as it is my favorite Broadway show. The main characters were outstanding, except i felt the rabbi should have been made older, and Yente was too young. I see Yente as a short older busy body gossip. i still would have rated the acting and the talent at 5 stars, and even the red coat worn by Hashmonay didn't bother me, but what was said afterwards by Hashmonay while taking the bows soured a wonderful show for me. Yes, this is very much related to what is happening in Ukraine today, I get it, but i come to be entertained, not be preached at, and personal words from the cast tend to stir up the crowd. One lady yelled out "I blame Jesus, its Jesus's fault" to which I say to that disrespectful lady you need Jesus just to breathe. I was insulted by what that lady said. My wife and i have had season tickets for many years, and if the DPCA only wants liberal people attending their shows, then they will lose me as a season ticket holder.

Loved the 1st half of the show. Was very
bored after intermission and disappointed
to not see a better moment of the "fiddler".
Felt like I didn't get my money's worth. We (
a friend & myself) left the show, which I had
seen twice awhile back, feeling "That's it??"

First act was brilliant. Dancing was so amazing!! Second act was slow and boring.
