Our visitors embody Joel Gray, whose staging of Fiddler within the Roof in Yiddish is having one other run at New World Phases Off-Broadway; Tovah Feldshuh, who not too long ago joined the solid of Broadway’s Humorous Woman within the function of Rose Brice; Caissie Levy, at the moment showing in Tom Stoppard’s Leopoldstadt on Broadway; Michael Arden, who in early November directed a high-profile revival of Jason Robert Brown’s Parade at Metropolis Heart; and Bess Wohl, whose play Camp Siegfried is at the moment working at Second Stage Off-Broadway.
