Review: Real live fiddler is rare treat

Fiddler On The Roof

Wycombe Swan

Wednesday, January 29

DIRECTOR Craig Revel Horwood brought the same format he used in The Witches of Eastwick at the Watermill recently to this show — namely a multi-tasking, multi-talented cast who can sing, dance and play a variety of instruments as well as act. The result is a multi-sensory feast, and in the case of Fiddler on the Roof there is also the added bonus of a story that makes you think.

The musical is based on a series of Jewish stories by Sholem Aleichem about a poor milkman and his community living in a corner of Russia that’s now Ukraine, just before the revolution.
