(5) Janeen Ravkin: A couple of months ago, i told you that Lee’s Hoagie House was opening in Asheville, well, on the 1st Fri. of each month -they have 1/2 price Italian Hoagies- last month the
girl that waited on me was at Lee’s in Southampton PA to learn the business and get
ready for the Asheville Lee’s Hoagie House. I mentioned to her that I have this friend
in Asheville and I could not wait to pass the word to you. I had no idea if it was close
to you however, i felt it my duty to tell you. Looks like you got there before I could
remember to give you the heads up!!!
This 1st Fri. we had a terrible rain/snow storm and I was not able to get out of the
house, so my husband did not get the $6.00 supposedly 1/2 price hoagie—however
they are very nice and although I don’t eat ham etc. I know the hoagie is well worth
it and delicious.
p.s. A while ago I brought the guys working at Lee’s some home made fudge and
they treat me like a superstar ever since. I bring my fudge to many workers at
places i frequent and I believe I get special treatment at these places.

(1) Celebrated Musical ‘Fiddler on the Roof’ Comes to MCCC’s Kelsey Theatre March 16-25
West Windsor, N.J. –Maurer Productions OnStage (MPO) is about to celebrate life, tradition, matchmakers and miracles as the award-winning company presents the beloved Broadway classic “Fiddler on the Roof.” Tevye and all the villagers from Anatevka take up residence at Mercer County Community College’s (MCCC’s) Kelsey Theatre Fridays, March 16 and 23 at 8 p.m.; Saturdays, March 17 and 24 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.; and Sundays, March 18 and 25 at 2 p.m. (Matinee performances are sold out.)
Kelsey Theatre is located on MCCC’s West Windsor Campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. A reception with the cast and crew follows the opening night performance on March 16.
No other musical has so poignantly woven storytelling, music, dance, romance, laughter and history into a night at the theater. Set in a small village in Imperial Russia circa 1905, the plot focuses on Tevye, a poor dairyman struggling to hold onto his religion, his Russian-Jewish traditions – and his five daughters! But with a menacing future looming ever nearer, Tevye becomes increasingly aware that life is “as shaky as a fiddler on the roof.” Audiences will cheer, laugh out loud, sing along, and perhaps shed a tear as Tevye and his companions are forced to adjust to a new reality where even cherished traditions may not endure.
With music by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, and book by Joseph Stein, the original Broadway production opened in 1964. It was the first Broadway musical to surpass 3,000 performances. Part of “Fiddler’s” appeal is its Tony Award-winning musical score, which includes such show stoppers as “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” “If I Were a Rich Man,” “Sunrise, Sunset,” “Anatevka” and “To Life!” In addition to its score, the show won eight other Tonys, including Best Musical. “Fiddler” has had five Broadway revivals and was adapted into a highly successful 1971 film. It has enjoyed lasting international popularity in countless community and school productions.
The cast features John Zimmerman of Hamilton as Tevye; Cindy Sherbin Chait of West Windsor as Golde; Ashleigh Ayres of Lawrence as Tzeitel; Jordan Virgil of East Windsor as Hodel; Dana Joy Carducci of Newtown, Pa., as Chava; Portia Murphy of Newtown, Pa., as Shprintze; Lily Schechter of Manalapan as Bielke; Joe Sherbin of West Windsor as Lazar Wolf; Ruth Markoe of Lawrence as Yente; Gavin Knox of Pemberton as Motel; John Fisher of Hamilton as Perchik; Paul Phalen of West Windsor as Fyedka; Jeffery Millstein of East Windsor as the Rabbi; Jeff Rosenthal of Dayton as the Rabbi’s son; Peter Sauer of Yardley, Pa., as Mordcha and Nachum; Dan Slothower of Plainsboro as Avram; Gail Rose of Princeton Junction as Grandma Tzeitel; Liz Susswein of Hamilton as Fruma-Sara; Jack Petzko of Cranbury as Yussel; and Sara Thier of Newtown, Pa., as Shaindel.
The ensemble also includes Laurie Hardy of Hamilton, Lyndsey Goehrig of Allentown, Ally Masson of Robbinsville, Olivia Schanbacher of Yardley, Pa., Bella Thier and Alex de Mets of Newtown, Pa., Connor McDowell and Brian Wurtz of Levittown, Pa, Nicholas Kianka of Hamilton, and Nicolas Fallacaro of Yardley, Pa.
