Video of the Week: Mazel Tov

Last night I watched a local performance of Fiddler on the Roof, so this week I'll present a clip from the movie--one of my favorite songs from the musical.

I think it's called "Mazel Tov" or "Tevye's Dream."  In the musical, Tevye is trying to convince his wife that their daughter should marry the poor tailor instead of the rich butcher.  But how to do this without incurring his wife's wrath?  He comes up with this ingenious plan to have a "vision" in his dreams ...

Oh, and I realized from the performance last night that the movie uses a condensed form of the song.  It's still pretty funny.
