In a note the other day, I mentioned the 2004 revival of Fiddler on the Roof that starred Alfred Molina. Here he is along with the company preforming at the opening of the Tony Awards that year. It's sort of a mashup between the song Tradition and the bottle-dancing during the wedding celebration of Tevye's daughter.
One oddity about the TV work here -- just as Alfred Molina, the star of the show, who plays Tevya, starts to throw himself into the role and begins to feverishly stomp down...the camera cuts away. (And then just as he begins to dance -- they cut away again.) Not the best artistic choice. I get the sense that the director's timing was just off, and a couple of cues might have been missed. Or not. But the number remains energetic...
