We both play the role of Hodel, we started our shows around the same time, and opened a month apart from each other. Monica in Australia and Samantha in New York on Broadway. So when does this ever happen!!!??? Not that often. Not to mention we are both quite alike. So we decided to put together a short film where we got to interview each other and find the answers to questions we wanted to know. Some are about the show, others have nothing to do with Fiddler but life and past experiences. We hope you enjoy and L'Chaim http://samanthamassell.com http://monicaswayne.com Fiddler on the Roof Australia currently playing at the Capitol Theatre, Sydney NSW till the 8th of May 2016 For more information and ticketing visit http://fiddlerontherooftour.com Fiddler of the Roof Broadway is currently playing at the Broadway Theatre, 1681 Broadway, New York NY 10019 For more information and ticketing visit http://fiddlermusical.com Thanks goes to Fiddler Aus and NYC for allowing us to film this fun film and everyone involved in the filming and making.

Our #FirstNightTakeover series continues with Perry O’Bree attending the London premiere of Broadway musical The Light In The Piazza at the Royal Festival Hall. Perry gets goosebumps from the beauty and style of the show and has the added bonus of catching up with several members of the cast afterwards including Dove Cameron, Rob Houchen, Celinde Schoenmaker and Liam Tamne. Oh and did we mention that he bumped into Tony Award-winner Ben Platt too?
