Fiddler on the Roof

1996

Fiddler on the Roof

LOGON finally made the break from Gilbert & Sullivan in 1996 with our first musical "Fiddler on the Roof". The Broadway and West End hit of the sixties, still so relevant to Jewish audiences around the world but perhaps especially close to home in Israel, proved to be the correct choice as we played to full houses throughout the country.
Helen Eleasari, directing for the 5th time, had a cast of over 60 on stage. Choreographer, Laora Naggan, was able again to call upon the "Holit" dance group of Makif Vav high school and Musical Director, newcomer Michael Leinwand, presided over a reduced orchestra of 12 players, augmented for the first time by David Waldmann's playback track.
The whole experience proved emotional for both performers and audiences and cemented the decision to switch from operettas to musicals for the future.
