Yesterday, my family and I had the great opportunity of seeing Topol in Fiddler on the Roof at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark. This performance was part of Topol’s final world tour playing the role of Tevye for which he became famous.
The performance was nothing short of magnificent. As always, Topol was the consummate Jewish papa. Years ago, my husband and I had the privilege of seeing Zero Mostel perform the same role when Fiddler opened on Broadway. As then, so now this musical touches a universal human chord that transcends all time.
This universality is the mark of great writing. Is your writing universal? The more it is, the more you will make memories with your words.
