Parker Playhouse: Sholom Aleichem: Laughter Through Tears

Sholom Aleichem: Laughter Through Tears is playing at the Parker Playhouse in Fort Lauderdale through Sunday, February 1, 2009.

Christine Dolen's review:

Speaking to a packed Parker Playhouse on opening night, Bikel easily connected with a mostly older, predominantly Jewish audience.

What he manages throughout his 90-minute show, however, takes work and seasoned artistry: As performer and creator of Sholom Aleichem, Bikel keeps observers rapt, balancing light-hearted moments with sobering ones, singing in that rich voice, and once again definitively embodying Tevye the dairyman.

Please feel free to add your own feedback below.
