2005: Robert Parks Johnson as Tevye in "Fiddler on the Roof"

For his portrait of Robert Parks Johnson as Tevye, the philosophical milk man from "Fiddler on the Roof," Mark Cornelison went to the place Tevye did his work: a barn -- Bluegrass Stock Yards, to be specific. This was Johnson's third dance with Tevye; his first was when he was a 16-year-old high school student.
