March madness

Theater

Harvey Fierstein has rarely hesitated taking on challenges, so accepting the iconic role of Tevye in “Fiddler on the Roof” isn’t as surprising as some people imagine.  Fierstein’s Atlanta leg of the touring musical is the highest-profile production in a busy month of local theater.

Fierstein originally played the role in a 2004 Broadway revival, taking over for actor Alfred Molina in 2005. So he was a natural when the tour needed a last minute replacement.
