Theodore Bikel has died. As he will forever be remembered for is playing the role of Tevye The Milkman. I did not know he was the original Captain Von Trapp. He was opposite Mary Martin. Oh I bet that was incredible to see.
Also was E.L Doctorow whose book Ragtime became a musical. I saw the show twice by two local groups and ranks as one of my least fav musicals. Too many storylines, depressing overall and music nothing memorable. I know some like my mother loves this musical. I never read the book or anything by him. Anyone? I did appreciate what the musical tried to do it just did not work for me.
