The electricity in Carol Morsani Hall, at the Straz Center in Tampa, for the opening performance of the National Tour of 'THE BOOK OF MORMON', was the closest I have experienced here, to the excitement of a Broadway opening night yet! The SOLD-OUT house was simply percolating, in anticipation of the 9 time Tony Award winning musical's Tampa debut.

It isn't often that Tampa Bay audiences have the golden opportunity to see a 'World Premier', by a local playwright. So, right off the bat, I say, 'BRAVO!' to the Carrollwood Players for their ambitious and innovative programming! And after seeing the play on opening night, in a theatre filled with a very appreciative audience, I say, 'BRAVO!, INDEED!', for a wonderful evening of thought provoking, contemporary theatre!

The lights dim in the cavernous hall, and the faint sound of a violin begins. Atop a thatched roof, is the vision of a Fiddler and then...the room becomes suddenly alive, in a grand opening, with the robust voices of over 50 peasant, villagers, singing 'TRADITION!..TRADITION!' And thus begins an enthusiastic and heartfelt rendition, of the classic American musical, 'FIDDLER on the ROOF', presented by the Live Oak Theatre Company, in Brooksville, FL.
