REVIEW: Intimate Production of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF Opens 2009-2010 Season for Mustard Seed Theatre REVIEW: Intimate Production of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF Opens 2009-2010 Season for Mustard Seed Theatre
by Chris Gibson - Nov 2, 2009

Mustard Seed Theatre's production of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF is being billed as a more intimate staging, eschewing some of the elements of spectacle and scope that can often overwhelm this simple tale. This presentation succeeds by focusing our attention on Joseph Stein's characters, and their joyous celebration of life. It's also a good way to appreciate Jerry Brock (music) and Sheldon Harnick's (lyrics) delightful score, with the meaning coming through with clarity and precision. The cozy confines of the black box theatre on the campus of Fontbonne College provides a perfect space for this timeless classic. (more...)
