BOCA RATON, Fla. — The lyrics of familiar Broadway songs like, "Matchmaker Matchmaker make me a match!" now fill and reverberate the auditorium at the Wick Theatre and Costume Museum.

"And just when you think, 'Oh, I've heard all the great songs' in comes another one... ...I mean we all know every one of them. No matter what your religion we all know every one well," said Kimberly Wick, who serves as the theatre's vice president.

"I think it's just an amazing universal story that everyone can relate to about wanting to hold on to traditions that we've loved our whole lives while at the same time needing to support the people that we love, and that's heavy his journey and it's just a wonderful role to be able to play," said Bruce Sabath, who plays Tevye.

"It's tragically current. But it is [a] universal story. It's at the heart of it of family, children growing going away and being forced out of your home is something that the world can relate to. And I don't think there's going to be a person that won't feel that," said actress Patty Gardner who plays Golde.
