Chicago Tribune - Somewhat Recommended
"...The non-Equity road tour of "Fiddler on the Roof" that's making a pit stop at the Auditorium (just in time for the secular Black Friday holiday) has plenty of the color and spirit of the shtetl on display, despite sets that feel a little lost on the stage and a pit orchestra on the slim side. Sammy Dallas Bayes' direction and choreography (based on the original by Jerome Robbins) features plenty of wit and charm. It's a safe, crowd-pleasing production — but not a particularly inspired one."

Chicago Stage Standard - Recommended
"... Sammy Dallas Bayes’ long-running touring production abounds in warmly crafted portrayals, especially Pamela D. Chabora’s flinty Golde, Joshua Phan-Gruber as the proto-revolutionary Perchik, and Sarah Sesler Hayden as his proto-feminist Hodel. Tradition indeed but, in this case, you don’t fix what was never broken since 1964. “Fiddler on the Roof” remains a powerful testament to a village united by habit as much as love and destroyed by ignorance as much as bigotry."

"... The singing and dancing fills you heart with joy and keeps your feet tapping to the wonderful score. The staging was very clever and interesting. as the chorus and dancers thread their way through the play with perfection. Favorite numbers are “Tradition”,” Match Maker-Match Maker”,” If I Were A Rich Man” &” Sunrise Sunset”.These are songs that stay in your heart and memory long after leaving the theater."
