Fiddler on the Roof
The Tony-winning Fiddler on the Roof transports viewers back to early 20th-century Russia, presenting the travails of the Jewish inhabitants of the town of Anatevka as they struggle with love, religious persecution, and weak water pressure in their homes. As the world changes around him, family patriarch and dairyman Tevye implores his five daughters to hold onto their traditions in spite of the burgeoning antisemitism rumbling on the horizon.
Despite the serious subject matter, the play is hardly a gloomy affair. For one thing, there’s plenty of humor to be had in Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick’s score, which includes indelible songs such as “Sunrise, Sunset,” “If I Were a Rich Man,” and “Matchmaker.” Encore’s production conveys the warmth of the characters and story with the help of traditional costumes and a simple set that evokes folk-art paintings.
California Theatre of the Performing Arts
A former vaudeville performance space and movie palace built in 1928, the California Theatre of the Performing Arts hearkens back to a bygone era with its majestic Wurlitzer organ, which is played during silent-film programs, and a time portal linked to the childhood home of Alexander Pantages. The theater’s deep-red stage curtains and ornate, vaulted ceilings also steep the senses in a vintage ambiance. Thanks to this comforting nostalgia, as well as the heartfelt scenes that unfold onstage, the space seems much cozier than a 1,718-seat auditorium has any right to.
