From the start, I thought Tevye who ended up being quite good, was talking to quickly, missing important places for emphasis on several important places... did not use space as a dramatic opportunity. A slower more poignant presentation of lines for Tevya and Golda could have been useful. I have seen Fiddler at least 4-5 times. Love the play and have tears each time. GREAT Dancing.

I saw the show on Tuesday night. It was excellent. The dancing and singing were very good. However, the lead actor was a poor speaker. He ran through his lines rapidly and without expression or punctuation. Many times I did not catch what he was saying. That's a big flaw in the otherwise superb performance. And it made both the beginning and ending much less effective.

Excellent story! Love Papa, he’s my favorite character. One thing, it was a lovely gesture to dedicate the last dance to Ukraine, but you forgot about Palestine! 🇵🇸

I've seen this show many many times as it is my favorite Broadway show. The main characters were outstanding, except i felt the rabbi should have been made older, and Yente was too young. I see Yente as a short older busy body gossip. i still would have rated the acting and the talent at 5 stars, and even the red coat worn by Hashmonay didn't bother me, but what was said afterwards by Hashmonay while taking the bows soured a wonderful show for me. Yes, this is very much related to what is happening in Ukraine today, I get it, but i come to be entertained, not be preached at, and personal words from the cast tend to stir up the crowd. One lady yelled out "I blame Jesus, its Jesus's fault" to which I say to that disrespectful lady you need Jesus just to breathe. I was insulted by what that lady said. My wife and i have had season tickets for many years, and if the DPCA only wants liberal people attending their shows, then they will lose me as a season ticket holder.

Loved the 1st half of the show. Was very bored after intermission and disappointed to not see a better moment of the "fiddler". Felt like I didn't get my money's worth. We ( a friend & myself) left the show, which I had seen twice awhile back, feeling "That's it??"

First act was brilliant. Dancing was so amazing!! Second act was slow and boring.

I have been to many plays and I have never felt the need to provide a review, but I must say that Yente was horrible in this play. She actually ruined the play for me. Her timing was consistently off (at times it seemed like someone had to remind her that it was her time to speak), and it seemed like she was reading her lines. She is a key character and her awful acting really took you out of the play. I actually have never been to a play where I thought an actor was so bad. The other characters were good. I thought the ending could have been much stronger. Some of the harmonies were fantastic and the dancing was excellent. Please replace this actress with someone who can act or at least relate to the character. Until then, I actually cannot recommend that you attend this play. Her performance is that off-putting.
