Topol in Fiddler on the Roof

Topol in Fiddler on the Roof


Posted on Sep 3, 2009

Fiddler was the first play in Broadway series this year.  After having such a great experience with our season tickets last year, we opted to keep our seats for another year.  Being born in the 1970's,  I grew up with Topol.  I've seen the movie a zillion times and can sing along to every song.  Getting the opportunity to see Fiddler with Topol was just incredible.  Every word, every gesture...

This past weekend, I went to the annual showcase of many of Oregon's creative guilds.  I love this show.  I try to go every year.  It's held in the Oregon Convention Center and it's a great way to see lots of art under one roof.  It's a great time to get presents and also to be inspired by so much creativity.  Going to this show year after year, I've started to recognize many of the...

Grease was the last play in this year's Broadway Series.   I saw the play on Saturday and apart from a few production errors, it was really great.  I was born and raised on the movie, so it was nice to finally see where the movie originated from.  I have to admit, I do like the movie better.   But the play was great fun and it was great to sing familiar songs (like Summer Nights pictured...

My husband and I received tickets for Storm Large's Crazy Enough play for  Christmas.  We went to the show on Sunday with our good friends.  We are all very big (large?) Storm fans and loved seeing her in Cabaret.   I also survived the Arctic Blast 2008 to see her Christmas Ball at the Wonder Ballroom with my cousin.  We all know that Storm can perform, but a play about her life?  I must...

Yesterday, I saw the very last performance of “Into the Dark Unknown” with Holcombe Waller and The Healers.  I’ve been a fan of Holcombe since I saw him in Wade McCollum’s play ‘One‘.   I’ve enjoyed Holcombe in concert too, but his performance yesterday was just amazing.  Into the Dark Unknown was a mixage of performance art and an intimate concert.  This top video was...

Last Saturday, Smartwick and I had a great evening out.  First we hit happy hour at Bernie's Southern Bistro (great happy hour!) and then we went to our favorite knitting instructor's book signing at Close Knit.  It was great to see her and get my book autographed.  It was my first time at Close Knit and the people were so nice.  I purchased yarn to make the beloved Gauntlet Gloves.  They told me...
