Post Help with my accent?
I am currently playing one of my dream roles, Chava in Fiddler on the Roof. Our director wants the daughters to use a light accent. I am really struggling with getting it right and it is affecting my acting. What makes it difficult is that in the film version and most of the videos online, the daughters speak with a neutral accent rather than sounding Russian or Jewish. I have tried listening to Russian and Yiddish accents, but I just can't get it to sound right. Any tips on improving my accent would be really helpful. :) The show opens in less than a month and I'm starting to get worried.

Currently: Laurey Williams (Oklahoma!)

Past: Irene Molloy (Hello, Dolly!), Chava (Fiddler on the Roof), Strawberry Seller (Oliver!), Chorus (Annie)

Dream roles: Christine (The Phantom of the Opera), Eponine (Les Miserables), any Disney leading lady
