Currently running at the Menier Chocolate Factory, Sir Trevor Nunn’s production of Fiddler left its audience in both stitches and tears. We absolutely loved it. It was so refreshing to see a grounded, measured, sober and thoughtful production of this fantastic show.
We had the pleasure of sitting down with Andy before a show to talk about his journey to Anatevka, the setting of Fiddler, the importance of the story (and not just to the Jewish population) and his personal emotional investment into this production. We were also joined by Paul Bogaev, the Emmy and Grammy winning musical director of Fiddler, who just happened to be walking through the foyer. We think you’ll agree he had some fascinating insights into this production.
Just a warning...there is some swearing in this episode.
