In the little village of Anatevka, Tevye, a poor dairyman, tries to instill in his five daughters the traditions of his tight-knit Jewish community in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia.
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.
Book by Joseph Stein • Music by Jerry Bock • Lyrics by Sheldon Harnick
