Rebecca Luker: "The Gentleman is a Dope" (Allegro). I think this is a rare song for Rodgers & Hammerstein. It's bluesy and jazzy. I'm drawn to this colorful character — this down-on-her-luck gal, who's in love with a man who's not available. She loves him, and she hates him. My favorite lyric from the song: "The gentleman isn't bright. He doesn't know the score. A cake will come, he'll take a crumb and never ask for more." Fantastic!
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
