Poor Shprintze and Bielke. Totally overshadowed by their big sisters, most of the time nobody even remembers they exist, let alone their names. While their fates are considerably less rosy in the Sholem Aleichem source material, I like to think that they settled down nicely in New York and continued to cause Tevye mild fatherly headaches with their nontraditional choice of suitors.
This comic is inspired by the Stratford Festival's 2013 production of Fiddler on the Roof. Now, I've seen Fiddler more times than I can remember, but I have no hesitation in declaring Scott Wentworth the best Tevye I have ever seen. They've extended their run of Fiddler until October 27. Get your tickets now! And then send me one.
