An Authentic Yiddish Revival Of Fiddler On The Roof
Beloved musical theatre classic Fiddler On The Roof smashed records when its first 1964 run on Broadway surpassed over 3000 performances, garnering a total of nine Tony Awards for its humour, warmth, honesty and celebration of the proud Jewish tradition. Now the Jerome Robbins and Harold Prince penned hit enjoys an all new Yiddish language staging of the iconic musical thanks to the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene and a creative team including Oscar and Tony Award-winning director Joel Grey.
A chance to witness an authentic rendition of the rousing tale of Tevye and his daughters, the North American premiere of The Fiddler In Yiddish chronicles the struggles of the poor Jewish milkman in the rapidly changing world of the early 1900s, against the backdrop of the pogroms and forced expulsions of Jewish shtetls in Russia. Three of his five headstrong daughters are determined to marry for love, but Tevye is as equally determined to make them stable matches that align with their traditions, aware that the balance of their lives is as precarious as a fiddler perched on a roof.
