Have seen fiddler 12 times in Australia since I was 16, in the 60`s, on stage. Hayes Gordon was fantastic and made fall in love with the show. was lucky enough to see you in Melbourne, my son took me, but I snuck back a few times again. DVDS have worn out . Hope all is well and I have seen other movies with you as well
