Fiddler on the Roof, Wolverhampton Grand FORMER Starsky & Hutch TV cop Paul Michael Glaser is making a big impact as a singer in the touring musical Fiddler on the Roof, which might surprise a few of his old American college chums.
During his time as a student his voice was not always appreciated, and he recalled: Although I've always enjoyed singing, when I was in college my roommates used to flush the toilet when I sang in the shower.
If I had a nickel for every time someone said 'stick to acting', I'd probably be a rich man.
But now, when Paul sings that classic If I Were a Rich Man in the new production of Fiddler, he gets a tremendous ovation from audiences who are loving the show which now has a different feel about it and runs at the Grand from October 15-19.
Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood, who directs and choreographs the show, has many of the cast playing instruments on stage while performing their parts - and the Fiddler on the roof is much more involved too.
It's certainly a big change from his role as the American cop, David Starsky, but he has been involved with Fiddler in the past. He played Perchick, the Bolshevik revolutionary, who falls in love with Tevye''''s second daughter, in the 1971 film version.
