The Road to Edmonton…

The Road to Edmonton...

OK, anyone else rather take a bus than fly these days…?

Travel Day was a breeze and we got to Edmonton with absolutely no drama… What a relief! No security checkpoints, no overweight luggage… just load up and go! Why don’t we do this more often? The world would be a better place…

Fiddler opens tomorrow night at the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium. Word is, this theatre looks exactly the same as the one in Calgary. I’ll believe it when I see it…

I’m looking forward to working with our three new cast members, Rusty, Mark and Emily. But mostly, I can’t wait to continue the hang Tamara Brooks backstage between entrances.

I’m actually quite accustomed to seeing myself in a babushka these days, but when I bumped into the Presenter at a restaurant tonight, she had absolutely no idea who I was… and she looked a little nervous when I knew her dog’s name!  It was pretty funny… But really, aren’t I just gorgeous in my sheitel??

Did you hear?? The reviews are in! Fiddler and Theodore Bikel are a hit in Calgary! And a Chinook wind kept us warm all week – that and my new fuzzy waterproof boots!

But as we said goodbye to Calgary, we also bid a tearful adieu to three cast members, Sean Patrick Doyle, Eric Van Tielen and Rena Strober.

Sayonara SPD, EVT & Rena!

Sniff… we’ll miss you guys!!

Fiddler goes to Calgary!

DID YOU HEAR…??

I’ve been on the road with Fiddler on the Roof since January 2009… can you believe it’s been a year? It feels like 12 months… 52 weeks… Oy!! Now and Forever!

So much has happened… We started with Topol back in Providence, RI… then Harvey Fierstein joined us in Toronto, and now we’re headed to Calgary with the one and only Theodore Bikel.

Follow the crazy antics of MIRELE ON THE ROOF!

Next stop, Calgary, with our newest star, Theodore Bikel.  Come see us at the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium through January 17th.
