Wonder of Wonders:
Tevye, Goldie, Perchick and Motel Fiddle Around with Joel at Toby’s Baltimore
Theodore Bikel might have performed the role of Tevye over 2,000 times*, but David Bosley-Reynolds who’s playing The Singing Milkman in Toby’s The Dinner Theatre of Baltimore’s heartwarming production of Fiddler On The Roof, has also called the role of Tevye his own.
Why is Fiddler still so popular 43 years after it opened on Broadway?
Listen as David (Tevye), Lynne Sigler (Golde), Matthew Schleigh (Perchick) and last minute substitute Joshua Singer (Motel) talk about their roles, how much of their own personalities are in their performances, and the scene in the show which is the most difficult to play. David and Lynne serenade you with a snippet of Do You Love Me? Listen here.
Find out what strange things have happened during the run. Listen to Joel and Helen Haye’s Nominee Matthew Schleigh reminisce about the G String incident on opening night of The Buddy Holly Story at Tobys Columbia – listen here – and why Matthew hopes that Joel doesn’t visit if he is ever cast as Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar. L’Chaim!
Fiddler On The Roof runs through June 10, 2007 at Toby’s The Dinner Theatre of Baltimore. For tickets, call (410) 649-1660 or (866) 99TOBYS, or visit their website .
