The first night of Fiddler on the Roof is behind us...2 more performances to go: tonight at 7:30 and tomorrow at 3:00.
I thought last night went okay. I heard that the orchestra sounded good, although I thought we could have done a lot better and been a little more together, so we get another chance tonight! There were over 200 tickets sold for last night. Tonight is supposed to be a packed house at 500, and the Saturday matinee already has sold over 300 tickets, according to what I've heard.
I thought Joel and Rebecca (Tevye and Golde) really stepped it up last night and were in their element. And I only noticed one missed line (Christopher/Motel); although it was a funny one, it wasn't that important. Maybe we'll get it in tonight. And maybe he'll make it through that song a little better--but at least it goes with his character anyway, no matter how he sings it.
But overall it went pretty well, and I hope it goes even better for the next 2 performances!
