if this is true. . .it sort of makes sense.
and the one in the middle (natalie manes) isn’t a little person, she’s just short and those twin sisters she plays with are amazons (hence her looking like a dwarf).

I hope they instill some of that charming anti-Bush rhetoric into the musical.

You shouldn’t make jokes like this, you’re giving them ideas.

Small historical point: “Color-blind casting” (which in effect meant casting with no regard whatsoever for whether the actor was an ethnic fit for a role) was promoted and put over by Joseph Papp, a Jewish boy from Brooklyn. I wonder how he’d feel about how “Fiddler” is being cast these days. Next: Denzel as Tevye!

I think one of them already plays the fiddle… Did that help them in the auditions?
