Here are several excerpts from a recent review:

Prime Publishers – Voices News (by Jean Dunn)  “Broadway Caliber” ‘Fiddler’ Opens to Full Audience

“Clay and Wattles Theater Company’s month-long production of Fiddler on the Roof opened Saturday, July 29, to a packed house at The Gary The Olivia Theater.

Clay and Wattles’ anniversary production … brings Broadway caliber singing and dancing to the universal story of family, tradition, love, exile and abiding faith with compassion, empathy and considerable humor.

Thomas Camm (Tevye) is a master of subtlety, able to convey Tevye’s increasing angst with a look or a shrug. His duet of “Do You Love Me?” with Barbara Salant as Golde, Tevye’s wife, is among the most tender moments in the show.

Monica Brown’s solo in “Matchmaker, Matchmaker” is stunning in its clarity, but it soon becomes apparent that all three actresses as the daughters (including Adrienne Camm as Chava and Megan Corcoran as Tzeitel) are outstanding singers.

Noah Pyzik as Motel, William Dallas as Perchik and Jay Wilkinson as Fyedka, the daughters’ respective love interests, and others in the ensemble raise the level of dancing far above what might be expected.

Megan Corcoran doubles as a perfectly frightful Fruma Sarah, the ghost who haunts Tevye’s dream in one of the most entertaining scenes in the show.

A 10-member pit orchestra expertly delivers the familiar score.

Matt Wood’s set design ably evokes the turn-of-the-century village and combined with Sally Camm’s staging is particularly lovely in the “Sabbath Prayer” sequence.”
