Why see Fiddler on the Roof?

The Musical Classic Returns!

Following 2016's wildly acclaimed Broadway revival, the classic Fiddler on the Roof is out on tour! A landmark show born of the Golden Age of American musicals, Fiddler is a boisterous, heartfelt tale of love and acceptance set in a Russia on the edge of revolution. Among the show's countless iconic songs written by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick are "If I Were A Rich Man", "Matchmaker, Matchmaker", and "Sunrise, Sunset."

Directed by Bartlett Sher

Fiddler first premiered on Broadway in 1964, and won an incredible nine Tony Awards. It was subsequently adapted for the silver screen, winning three Oscars. The latest Broadway production, led by the irrepressible Danny Burstein, proved to be a worthy successor, playing over 400 performances and picking up three Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical and Best Choreography. With Tony winner Bartlett Sher in the director's chair

WHAT IS FIDDLER ON THE ROOF ABOUT?

At the turn of the 20th Century, Russia is a country on the brink of revolution. Although the chaos seems to seldom touch the isolated family of Tevye the Milkman, he sees the effect on his three elder daughters and the lives that they choose the lead.

Tzeitel, the oldest has little prospects for a poor woman, when the widowed and ancient butcher Lazar Wolf shows interest in her whilst she pines for the poor tailor Motel, it begins a story of rebellion, violence, love and acceptance that finds Tevye and the family learning to leave behind their old lives and start a new one full of hope and laughter!

Outstanding Tevye

A most enthusiastic cast, with superb dancers. The new choreography and staging is far better than the original. The Israeli actor playing Tevye is astonishing good as an actor and singer - and I’ve seen Zero Mostel and others play this role. Alas, Golde, his wife, lacks soul, never captures that Jewish mother/wife essence under the hardness. Yenta is terrible; shocking she was cast. The oldest daughter is excellent; the youngest can act but lacks the voice. The rabbi and other men also lack voice power and/or acting chops. Still, go see it, for Tevye and the dancing! You will cry and fall in love with the show again, anyway. ... Read more
