Last week my sister offered me her extra ticket to Fiddler on the Roof at the Paramount in Seattle. We had a lot of fun.
Kids in my family grew up on Fiddler on the Roof because my parents loved soundtracks to musicals. We knew how to thread the reel to reel stereo, and then blast the music as we danced around singing the songs. Several of my sisters and I even once performed ‘Matchmaker, Matchmaker’ in a church talent show. So it was fun to go with Shannon and laugh and cry together (I was totally wiping tears on my scarf!)
Tevya always reminds us of Dad, cooking for us and stomping around the kitchen, waving his arms around singing ‘If I Were a Rich Man…"’
