Fiddler on the Roof

As well as taking over the Tevye role in June 1967 (while Topol went to Israel to fight in the Six-Day War), George Little also covered for Topol in October 1967 and for Alfie Bass in September 1968.

Having taken over from Topol, Alfie Bass was subsequently replaced by Lex Goudsmit. Bass then returned so Goudsmit could star in the show’s national tour, starting in April 1970 (qv). Bass was later replaced by Goudsmit again, and the role was then handed onto Barry Martin, who had previously replaced Goudsmit on the tour.

Hy Hazell, who replaced Avis Bunnage as Golde, died on Sunday 10th May 1970. Avis Bunnage returned to the role to replace her.
