Personal Quote:

I don't audition, because I don't like it. When you own a store, you sell products, but when you audition, you are trying to sell yourself. If they turn you down, they turn you down. I will not have it. I tell the people, 'Look, you're not buying a house. Take a chance.' See more »

Trivia:

Fyvush appeared in the touring company of "Fiddler On The Roof" for 12 years. Initially he performed the role of the innkeeper, but ultimately assumed the lead role of Tevye. See more »
