I would have to say my favorite character would have to be Perchik, just because I played him and I had a blast!

Fruma Sarah is probably my favorite, followed by Chava.

Grandma Tseitel. My daughter played it in a youth production with a Brooklyn accent and got huge laughs. I've loved the character ever since.

My choice is Fyedka, because he was a mensch - a decent, principled human being who would neither do the Tsar's dirty work - evicting his wife Chava's family from their home - nor be put off by Tevye's cold shoulder.

The most interesting character is Tevye, in my opinion. However, the most fun character to play, for me, would be Hodel cuz she sings the most. If I liked to do character acting, I'd wanna be Yente cuz she has some darn funny scenes. I vote based on how much I'd want to play the character. : )

Come on, everyone knows that Tevye is the heart and soul of this show. The audience becomes so close to him over the course of this show. By the end, you are feeling and experiencing his anger, joy and pain right along with him. There probably has nver been as much of a layered character in theatre history!

Post My Favourite Character
My favourite character is Motel. I've always been touched by his journey from boyhood to manhood, growing from a passive pushover to someone who actively takes charge of his life and begins to realise his dreams and ambitions, no matter how small they might be. And he sings my favourite song in the score, "Miracle of Miracles".

Later days
David
