Stage Right Theatre Company’s ‘Fiddler’ all about family, on, off stage

I am thrilled to be part of this great cast. “The thing that makes ‘Fiddler’ so special is the story of family, the story of tradition,” says Tony Marino, artistic director at Stage Right Theatre Company, which brings a production of “Fiddler” to The Palace Theatre in Greensburg from Nov. 21 to 23.

Rehearsal Rabbi-Cam

This weekend, I will be playing the rabbi in Stage Right Theatre Company’s production of Fiddler on the Roof.

On his forehead, he’s wearing a phylactery — a box containing holy scrolls, keeping the word of God close to his thoughts. Here is…

“Cool” Rosetta Mission Scientist Matt Taylor Objectifies Women via T-Shirt, Language

How very sad that someone with this level of visibility is making the choices Matt Taylor has been making. A female scientist who chose to appear at a public event dressed like the sexualized women on Taylor’s T-shirt would likely be criticized as unprofessional, so it’s only fair to wonder what Dr. Taylor was thinking when he chose to wear that particular shirt. To that end, Let’s see how he has invoked gender recently… Watch the…
