MN90:Fiddler on a Chanhassen Roof

The not-so tiny town of Chanhassen, Minnesota is home to one of the longest running dinner theater's in the country. It began when Herbert and Carolyn Bloomberg, both lovers of Broadway shows, asked themselves, " Wouldn't it be nice to have a little bit of Broadway in Chanhassen?" Now, four decades and over ten million visitors later, the rest is history. Allison Herrera tells us about the Chanhassen Dinner Theater.
