Thank you to Glenn Patterson for directing with such heart and care.

“…here, in our little village of Anatevka, you might say every one of us is a fiddler on the roof trying to scratch out a pleasant, simple tune without breaking his neck.”

It’s very hard to leave Anatevka… where we know everyone we meet.
