Знаменитый чикагский танец с бутылкой

Исполняет, кстати, внучка кого бы вы думали -

Patrick Paul Billingsley (May 3, 1925 – April 22, 2011) was an American mathematician and stage and screen actor, noted for his books in advanced probability theory and statistics. He was born and raised in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 1946. After earning a Ph.D. in mathematics at Princeton University in 1955, he was attached to the NSA until his discharge from the Navy in 1957. In 1958 he became a professor of mathematics and statistics at the University of Chicago, where he served as chair of the Department of Statistics from 1980 to 1983, and retired in 1994. In 1971-72 he was a Guggenheim Fellow and visiting professor at the University of Cambridge. From 1976 to 1979 he edited the Annals of Probability. In 1983 he was president of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics. He was given the Lester R. Ford Award for his article "Prime Numbers and Brownian Motion." He was elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1986. He starred in a number of plays at Court Theatre and Body Politic Theatre in Chicago and appeared in at least nine movies. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patrick_Billingsley

Часто ли завкафедрой матстатистики по совместительству в театре Шекспира играет?

Внучка тоже далеко пойдет...

Почему "внучка"?

Девочка потому что.

Ловко притворяется!

С таким дедушкой я бы Наташу Ростову на балу мог сыграть...

А почему в одиночестве, в оригинале четверо же?

...Robbins was still tinkering with it as late as two weeks before “Fiddler” opened on Broadway on Sept. 22, 1964. At last, obsessed by something he’d seen done by a Brooklyn Hasid he’d nicknamed “Mr. Redbeard,” he called a dozen male dancers into the studio to learn to bounce, twist and sway in ever more difficult “whips and hooks” — all with bottles balanced atop their heads. Robbins didn’t allow stage illusions, so each night’s performance of the dance was to carry a real risk of injury from shattered glass. (Today’s Amazing Bottle Dancers, to put it delicately, leave a good bit less to chance.) By injecting an element of danger into the dance, Solomon writes, Robbins ... converted Tzeitel and Motel’s wedding into a genuine showstopper.

Танец исполнялся соло; первый постановщик мюзикла придумал вывести четырех танцоров одновременно для большей зрелищности; теперь это нововведение считается древней хасидской традицией.

Так танец существовал еще до пьесы? Я думал, что он абсолютно современная постановка

Эка невидаль: завкафедрой в театре.
А вот, например, европейско-голливудская суперзвезда Хеди Ламарр, со вкусом снимавшаяся без одежды (и, да, ей было что показать!), по совместительству изобрела систему связи с расширенным спектром, благодаря которой мы тут переписываемся...

Она изобрела не это, а механические частотные переключения, которые никогда не работали. Биллингсли же был действительно большим математиком в теории вероятности. И книжки у него отличные.
