True Love Stars in PPAC's Fiddler on the Roof


Published:

Fiddler on the Roof at PPAC.

It’s a rare Broadway affair: two onstage lovers who, behind-the-scenes, are actually in love. Not the puppy kind, and not a short-lived infatuation, but the sort of love that keeps two people together their whole lives through. That noticeably glows from them, even from fifteen rows back.

In the musical Fiddler on the Roof, playing at Providence Performing Arts Center November 23 through 25, witness a real-life, twenty-five-year-old love story shine through actors and married couple, Jimmy Ferraro and Dee Etta Rowe. In Fiddler, Ferraro and Rowe star as a Jewish couple struggling to support the choices of their coming-of-age daughters while also keeping beloved traditions in place.

Below, Ferraro and Rowe tell the tale of their own whirlwind romance and discuss their roles in Fiddler on the Roof. Plus, the couple performs an a capella version of crowd favorite, “Do You Love Me?” which, they say, hits very close to home.

Seats for Fidder on the Roof are still available, so call PPAC's box office at 421-2747 or stop by the theater to purchase tickets before the show at 220 Weybosset St., Providence.
