**** Recommended **** Although “Fiddler on the Roof” is considered by many to be a classic, it’s not one of my favorite musicals because it’s so sad – and I don’t think musicals should have a sad ending. That said, the Broadway in Chicago touring production of “Fiddler on the Roof”, with a really talented cast, is an excellent production. With Israeli actor/director Yehezkel Lazarov starring as Tevye, it’s a must-see. 4 Spotlights
