An evening of stories by renowned Jewish writer Sholem Aleichem, the creator of the Tevye stories which became the basis of 'Fiddler on the Roof.' More…
'Tevye Served Raw' features a mix of purely comic non-Tevye stories and comic and dramatic Tevye stories. It goes back to Sholem Aleichem's original, and it shows you what they left out of 'Fiddler,' going much deeper into what life in the shtetl - where most American Jews' ancestors come from - was really like. Plus you find out what happened to the characters after the plot of the musical ends.
Performed in English and Yiddish, with English supertitles.
See it if you speak Yiddish. You'll be delighted to hear the actors speaking the colorful language with ease.
Don't see it if you want to learn about SA or to enjoy his stories. I love his writing, but didn't find their charm/humor here. Subtitles awkwardly placed.
