Reply Megarita August 18, 2005 at 3:58 am This is starting to take that turn past parody to cataclysm. You couldn’t make up this casting… Reply The Moviequill August 18, 2005 at 7:17 am the one on the left has my name on it Reply Tanya August 18, 2005 at 8:23 am Well, naturally. Reply ms. sizzle August 18, 2005 at 8:33 am 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). Reply Charlie August 18, 2005 at 10:35 am I hope they instill some of that charming anti-Bush rhetoric into the musical. Reply JJ MacMillan August 18, 2005 at 11:53 am You shouldn’t make jokes like this, you’re giving them ideas. Reply Michael Blowhard August 18, 2005 at 12:12 pm 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! Reply Aurorealis August 19, 2005 at 4:50 pm I think one of them already plays the fiddle… Did that help them in the auditions? Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
