With a score of unforgettable songs like "If I Were a Rich Man," "Matchmaker, Matchmaker," "Sunrise, Sunset," "Tradition" and "To Life," Fiddler on the Roof follows the life of Tevye, a dairyman in a small Russian village. Tevye attempts to honor and maintain the Jewish religious customs of his ancestors, but times are changing and his daughters are eager to follow new ways. When dangerous forces threaten the village's traditional way of life, Teyve's faith and love for his family give him strength to fight for his home and the traditions of his people. Based on the classic stories of Sholem Aleichem, this winner of nine Tony Awards explores timeless themes of community, family and tradition. Learn More

Another very good offering from ArtsWest, "Next Fall" is a rather bittersweet exploration of love, loss, regret and the human soul. Although there were times that the chemistry between the "Adam" and "Luke" seemed a little questionable (especially where the bouts of playfulness seemed not spontaneous, but merely unmotivated), Christopher Zinovitch's portrayal of brave grief was convincing enough to bring quiet tears to the eyes of several audience members...myself included. Overall, it was a thought-provoking and emotion-moving play that likely has something to resonate with almost everyone, well-executed.
Next Fall is playwright Geoffrey Nauffts’ first theatrical play, after several years of acting, directing and writing for theatre, film and television. A writer for the long-running ABC hit series, Brothers and Sisters, Nauffts is currently collaborating with Elton John on a score for Showstopper, a screenplay written for Ben Stiller’s production company.
The ArtsWest cast includes Christopher Zinovitch (Adam), David Elwyn Traylor (Luke), Kate Witt (Holly), John Wray (Butch), Patricia Haines-Ainsworth (Arlene), Daniel Stoltenberg (Brandon).
“Next Fall is a perfect show for a venue such as ArtsWest,” notes Artistic Director Christopher Zinovitch. “This is a very personal, tight-focus play, and the intimacy of our performance space will create an intense emotional experience for the audience. Silences will be deafening, the tension electric.”
