Fiddler on the Roof

My nephew Cam is in a wonderful performance of Fiddler on the Roof this weekend. The musical was produced by The Little Theater of Fall River and was performed in the theater at Bristol Community College. Cam is in multiple scenes as a Russian and dancer. He is so talented and did a wonderful job. Fiddler on the Roof is a musical based on book by Joseph Stein. The setting is Anatevka, a small village in Russia in 1905, on the eave of the Russian Revolutionary Period.  The story is based on Tevye the Dairyman and his 5 daughters as he attempts to maintain his Jewish religious and cultural traditions as outside influences encroach upon the family’s lives. He must cope both with the strong-willed actions of his three older daughters, who wish to marry for love – each one’s choice of a husband moves further away from the customs of his faith – and with the edict of the Tsar that evicts the Jews from their village. This is an image from the cover of the playbill and is done in Prismacolor black pen with Holbein watercolors in a Stillman and Birn sketchbook.
