Zero Mostel's `Terye the Dairyman'
Glorifies Sholem Aleichent's Theme

"Tevye" is on the way to New
York, and the audiences that are
packing Detroit's Fisher Theater
to see the performance of the
Sholem Aleichem theme starring
Zero Mostel in "Fiddler on the
Roof" predict that this play will
have one of the longest runs on
record on Broadway when the per-
formances begin there the end of
this month.
There is genuine excellence in
the producer's application of
"Tevye der Milchiger" — "Tevye
the Dairyman"—to this play, and
Mostel, as Tevye, is superb.
For a pre-Broadway showing,
"Fiddler on the Roof" is most
unique. It is almost faultless in
its preparatory stages. While the
rabbi could, as one critic states,
be a more dignified representa-
tive, it is such a minor criticism

THRU SUN., AUG. 9
lineation of the badkhan—the jes-
ter who officiates at a wedding
dinner, the impersonations of the
ghetto philosophers.
The Sabbath eve ceremony is
truly beautiful. The prayer could
include some Hebrew, and that's
a shortcoming. The "Le'Hayim" is
used in a major song and there is
resort to other Hebrew words.
When Tevye sips his liquor with
the butcher, he actually says
"shehakol niyeh bidvoro." Why not
also the "borei pri hagofen?"
That's a suggestion for those who
may be revising the text for
Broadway.
Except for such minor items
and the regrettable emphasis on
"ham" (instead of corned beef)
in the printed program's sand-
wich essay, Detroit's Fisher Thea-
ter stands out as a pioneer in re-
viving a Sholem Aleichem theme
