REVIEW BY JOE SZEKERES
Chief Toronto Critic for www.onstageblog.com AND Theatre columnist for www.slowcity.ca

“Have classic music theatre productions run their course? Do they still appeal to twenty first century audiences and youthful tastes which range from such modern titles as HAMILTON, IN THE HEIGHTS, AVENUE Q, WAITRESS, and THE BOOK OF MORMON? Let’s face it, audiences and their interests constantly change and that’s positive. Hopefully a strong arts community monitors and gauges what the public wants to see and can provide accordingly continued high quality entertainment.  Antonio Sarmiento, Director of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, certainly believes there is an appeal of the classics and a place for them more than ever. This musical’s timeless story of societal change grounded firmly in traditional values of family and faith will always remain dearly held in the hearts of theatre lovers. Sarmiento’s enthusiasm for the performing arts is contagious, and this solid production of FIDDLER now on stage at Port Hope’s beautiful Capitol Theatre is proof the arts community thrives in this town.”   [FULL REVIEW]
