Rich in historical and ethnic detail, Fiddler on the Roof has touched audiences around the world with its humor, warmth, and honesty. The universal theme of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy, and sadness. Its celebrated score features songs loved the world over: “Sunrise, Sunset,” “If I Were a Rich Man,” and “Matchmaker,” to name a few. The cast features the one-and-only Birdie Newman Katz as Golde.
