STORY AND PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK

“Fiddler on the Roof” opens with a fiddler played by Lowie Watkins perched on a rooftop. And it ends with the fiddler playing the same plaintive familiar refrain.

The fiddler on the roof serves as a metaphor, demonstrating the strength of tradition.

The fiddler is often unbalanced, one breath away from falling. And so, too can traditional practices, culture and faith, points out the musical.
