“Tradition”: Fiddler on the Roof, Jr. at the Duluth Playhouse

I had the opportunity to attend a performance of this charming production on opening night.  A talented group of young actors and a kid-friendly run time (just over an hour) truly make this an event for the entire family (not to mention a great way to introduce a younger generation to a well-loved musical!).

Hail of bullets:

  • What: Fiddler on the Roof, Jr.
  • Where: The Duluth Playhouse
  • When: October 22-31 (Thursdays and Fridays at 7 p.m., Saturdays at 1 and 4 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m).

I saw it friday evening and thought it AMAZING. My daughter plays Yente and has channeled her great grand mother in the role

After running into someone who said I must take my young children (who are violinists) to see this show, due to the talent of "the fiddler," I was supremely disappointed and shocked to see that the fiddler wasn't a fiddler at all!  Never in my life have I seen an "air violin" performance. 
  
All joking aside, I think it's a real shame that a child wasn't used in the small part to play an authentic violin!  Especially since the title of the play is "FIDDLER on the Roof!"  There are SO many young, talented musicians here in Duluth who would have loved a chance to play that part on a REAL instrument!
