Absorbing, Great staging, Great dancing, Great singing, Great acting

See it if you want to see "Fiddler" with a more authentic look and feel, you love the songs, you love wonderful Russian and/or Jewish style dancing.

Don't see it if you're not interested in the story, or you don't like to read titles, or you only want to see gorgeous costumes and sets.

Also I loved this production and found it very moving.
