Published 9:54 am, Monday, November 11, 2013
The show will run weekends through Dec. 14, with performances at 7:30 p.m. Saturday; Sunday matinees are at 2 p.m.
"Fiddler on the Roof," based on the short stories of Sholem Aleichem, is set in the little village of Anatevka, where Tevye, a poor dairyman, tries to instill in his five daughters the traditions of his tight-knit Jewish community in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of czarist Russia.
"For more than 100 performances in the Mulberry Street series of plays," Ursone said, "I have played the patriarch of an Italian immigrant family with children questioning their heritage and traditions. I have often referred to that character as an Italian Tevye, so I am thrilled to play this role for the first time."
