'Fiddler on the Roof' pulls actor Peter Kevoian back to show

You might say tradition drew him in.

So strong was the pull of custom that Broadway performer Peter Kevoian, given the opportunity to return to the role of poor dairyman Tevye for the fourth time, chose to land in Nashville for Studio Tenn Theatre Company's upcoming production of "Fiddler on the Roof" rather than renew his contract with a national tour of a different show. He was so familiar with the part he didn't even ask for a script.

"I can't convey how happy I am to be doing this," says Kevoian, a member of the original Broadway cast of "The Phantom of the Opera," the "Zorba" Broadway revival, the Chicago productions of "Wicked" and "Ragtime," and numerous other productions. "It's very much an act of love."
