Fiddler on the roof
- fabulous singers,
the acting was excellent too
Fiddler on the Roof is a musical with music by Jerry Bock,
lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, and book by Joseph Stein,
set in Tsarist Russia in 1905.
It is based on Tevye and his Daughters.
The story centers on Tevye,
the father of five daughters,
and his attempts to maintain his family
and religious traditions while outside influences
encroach upon their lives.
He must cope with both the strong-willed actions
of his three older daughters—
each one's choice of husband moves further away
from the customs of her faith
—and with the edict of the Tsar that evicts the Jews from their village.
By the way, earlier on Wednesday
had a cup of tea with macarons
- delicious small macaroons
with orange & poppy seeds
