What the Audience Really Thought about Rosie O’Donnell in ‘Fiddler on the Roof’

Keith Doran, 18, Rutgers student
“I didn’t even know she was in it—I saw her, and I was like, ‘That looks like Rosie O’Donnell.’ And it was.”

Linda Slim, 19, Rutgers student
“I like her. I think she’s doing a good job. Well, I mean, you can pick up her little Rosie O’Donnell accent, for sure.”

Chris Fernandez, 19, Student
“I kind of dozed off for a little bit, so I don’t quite remember most of the play that’s happened so far. But [my friends] are going to catch me up on it.”

Rebecca Gordon, “65-plus,” School Worker
“I’ve seen this so many times, and it’s hard to swallow. It’s essentially a Jewish show, so it’s hard to look at her face, knowing that she’s not … you know.”

Moris Reichling, Swiss student
“My aunt lives here, and her husband is a Jude [Jew], and so he organized it. I don’t know who Rosie O’Donnell is. In Europe, she’s not so famous, I think.”
