Backstage- Gwen Orel
"Packed with life, joy and insight… wonderful to see a black Jewish family dancing with gestures more reminiscent of 'The Lion King' than 'Fiddler on the Roof'. The choreography of Iddi Saaka delights as does Idan Zilbershteins music. All the performances are terrific espcicially Vassa’s mischievous Andargay . Sharp Direction by Shai Ben Attar and smart translation (by Howard Rypp from the original Hebrew) keep things lively. A treat and a half!"
