" 아마도 영화 '지붕 위의 바이올린'은 많이 봤어도 뮤지컬은 그리 많이 접하지 못했을 겁니다.

저도 마찬가지지만 젊은 시절의 영화의 추억을  되새기며 포스팅해봅니다. 

시어도어 비켈의 명복을 빕니다"


   미국 브로드웨이 뮤지컬 '지붕 위의 바이올린'에서 주인공 '시어도어 비켈]이 미국 로스앤젤레스(LA)에서 향년 91세로 별세했다.


테비에 역을 2000회 이상 소화한 배우 겸 가수로 1924년 오스트리아에서 태어난 비켈은 10대 시절 부모와 함께 팔레스타인(지금의 이스라엘)으로 이주해 키부츠에서 생활했다. 그는 이곳에서 드라마에 관심을 갖게 돼 텔아비브 드라마 학교에 입학해 정식 배우 수업을 받았다. 


그는 다수의 뮤지컬과 영화, TV 드라마 등에서 다양하고 개성 있는 역할을 맡아 '르네상스형 배우'라는 평가를 받았다. 비켈은 뮤지컬과 영화, 드라마에서 다양한 역할을 소화해냈다. 스코틀랜드 경찰관에서 러시아 잠수함 함장, 유대인 망명자, 네덜란드 해군 장교, 헨리 키신저 전 미국 외무장관에 이르기까지 다양한 역할을 맡았다.


그는 1958년 영화 '흑과 백'에서 남부 경찰관 역을 맡아 아카데미상 후보에 올랐으며, 이듬해인 1959년에 브로드웨이 뮤지컬 '사운드 오브 뮤직'에서 캡틴 조지 본 트랩 역을 맡았다.


무엇보다 비켈이 대중에게 자신을 각인시키게 된 것은 1964년 초연된 브로드웨이 뮤지컬 '지붕 위의 바이올린'에서 아버지 테비에 역을 맡으면서다. '지붕 위의 바이올린'은 가난하고 힘든 하루하루 속에서도 삶을 긍정하는 낙천적인 태도로 자신에게 주어진 오늘을 성실히 걸어가는 주인공의 모습에서 자연스레 지난 과거, 우리들의 아버지와 할아버지의 뒷모습이 겹쳐 보이는 작품이다. 그는 1971년까지 테비에 역을 2000회 이상 소화해냈다.


그러나 비켈은 영화로 리메이크돼 흥행을 거둔 '사운드 오브 뮤직'과 '지붕 위의 바이올린'에는 출연하지 않았다. 이어 1966년 코미디 영화 '러시안스'에서 러시아 잠수함 함장으로 출연해 또 다시 아카데미상 후보에 올랐다. (출처 글로벌이코노믹)


Theodore Bikel, ‘Fiddler on the Roof’ Star, Dies at 91

Oscar- and Tony-nominated character actor and folk singer Theodore Bikel, who originated the role of Captain von Trapp in “The Sound of Music” on Broadway and starred in “Fiddler on the Roof” onstage in thousands of performances, died Tuesday morning in Los Angeles. He was 91.


In a statement Tuesday, Actors’ Equity Association said it “mourns the passing of our dear friend, our brother and former President Theo Bikel. From the time he joined Equity in 1954, Bikel has been an advocate for the members of our union and his extraordinary achievements paved the way for so many. No one loved theater more, his union better or cherished actors like Theo did. He has left an indelible mark on generation of members past and generations of members to come. We thank you, Theo, for all you have done.”


To some, he is best known for his 1990 appearance on “Star Trek: The Next Generation” as the Russian adopted father of the Klingon Worf.


Bikel did his first bigscreen work in John Huston’s 1951 classic “The African Queen” and Huston’s “Moulin Rouge.” After acting in a series of English films, he did supporting work in two high-profile pics in 1957: historical epic “The Pride and the Passion,” starring Cary Grant, Frank Sinatra and Sophia Loren, and “The Enemy Below,” a WWII submarine thriller starring Robert Mitchum.


He often played Germans or Russians — in his autobiography, Bikel said that his facility with accents resulted in his typecasting “as the poor man’s Peter Ustinov.” But in Stanley Kramer’s 1958 film “The Defiant Ones,” starring Sidney Poitier and Tony Curtis, he portrayed a Southern sheriff pursuing a pair of fugitives — and was Oscar nominated for the role.


Bikel had notable supporting turns in Susan Hayward starrer “I Want to Live!” and the remake of “The Blue Angel.” He played dialect expert Zoltan Karpathy in the 1964 film version of “My Fair Lady” and the captain of the Russian submarine in “The Russians are Coming, the Russians Are Coming,” and he appeared in Frank Zappa’s experimental “200 Motels.”


During the 1950s he appeared on prestigious episodic anthology programs including “Goodyear Playhouse,” “The United States Steel Hour,” “Studio One in Hollywood,” “Kraft Theatre” and “Playhouse 90.” He appeared in an episode of “The Twilight Zone” in 1962, and he guested on “Gunsmoke,” “Mission: Impossible,” “Hawaii Five-O” and “Ironside”; during the 1970s he appeared on “Mod Squad,” “Little House on the Prairie,” “Charlie’s Angels,” “Columbo” and “Fantasy Island.” Bikel had recurring roles in the 1980s on “Dynasty” and “Falcon Crest.”

Onstage, Bikel made his first appearance as Tevye in the musical “Fiddler on the Roof” in 1967 and performed the role more than any other actor (at least 2,000 times — more than Chaim Topol, who starred in the movie version and also appeared as Tevye numerous times onstage). When Topol withdrew from a North American tour of show in 2009 due to injury, Bikel subbed in.


Bikel was president of the Associated Actors and Artistes of America, a federation of trade unions for performing artists in the U.S. including Actors’ Equity and the Screen Actors Guild. He was active in Actors Equity for many years, eventually serving as president in the late ’70s and early ’80s.


Theodore Meir Bikel was born in Vienna but his family fled to Palestine after the Nazi invasion in 1938. He was a busy young man in Palestine and then the new state of Israel, acting while still in his teens — he made his stage debut as the Village Clerk in “Tevye the Milkman” at the Habimah Theater in Tel Aviv in 1943, and the next year he co-founded the city’s Cameri Theater, which went on to become one of Israel’s foremost legit houses. (“Tevye the Milkman” was based on the same source material as “Fiddler on the Roof,” in which Bikel would later star repeatedly.)


In his autobiography he addresses the key moral dilemma of his life: He did not return to Israel to fight in the 1948 War of Independence after departing to seek stage work: “A few of my contemporaries regarded what I did as a character flaw, if not a downright act of desertion. In me, there remains a small, still voice, that asks whether I can ever fully acquit myself in my own mind.”


After making his London debut in “You Can’t Take It with You” in 1948, he played Mitch in “A Streetcar Named Desire” opposite Vivien Leigh and directed by Laurence Olivier; he starred in “The Love of Four Colonels,” Peter Ustinov’s first success as a playwright, in 1951; and he starred in “Dear Charles” in 1954.


Bikel then moved to the U.S. and made his Broadway debut in “Tonight in Samarkand.”

He drew his first Tony nomination in 1958 for “The Rope Dancers” and picked up his second two years later for “The Sound of Music.” Bikel had produced and sang on several albums of Jewish folk songs during the 1950s, and right before “The Sound of Music” was to open on Broadway, Rodgers and Hammerstein wrote the song “Edelweiss” specifically for him to sing and accompany himself on the guitar.


Also in 1959, Bikel co-founded the Newport Folk Festival with Pete Seeger and George Wein. A couple of years later he, with Herb Cohen, opened the Unicorn, L.A.’s first folk coffeehouse. Later they opened a second place, Cosmo Alley, which presented not only folk music but poets and comics including Lenny Bruce. Bikel recorded 27 albums, many featuring Hebrew and Yiddish folk music. Bikel was growing increasingly political and attended the 1968 Democratic Convention as a delegate.


He guested in the ’90s on “Law and Order,” “Babylon 5” and repeatedly on “Murder, She Wrote.” His most recent TV appearance was on an episode of “JAG” in 2003. In 2010 Bikel was nominated for the Drama Desk Award for outstanding solo performance for “Sholom Aleichem: Laughter Through Tears.”


“Theo: The autobiography of Theodore Bikel” was published in 1995 and reissued in 2002. Bikel was also appointed by President Carter to serve on the National Council for the Arts.

In a statement, the Actors’ Equity Association said: “From the time he joined Equity in 1954, Bikel has been an advocate for the members of our union and his extraordinary achievements paved the way for so many. No one loved theater more, his union better or cherished actors like Theo did.  He has left an indelible mark on generation of members past and generations of members to come. We thank you, Theo, for all you have done.”


 

His third wife, conductor Tamara Brooks, died in 2012, but he married again in 2013. Bikel is survived by his fourth wife, Aimee Ginsburg-Bikel, sons Rob and Danny, stepsons Zeev and Noam Ginsburg and three grandchildren.
