Fiddler on the Roof was the first musical to exceed 3,000 performances when it first opened on Broadway in 1964.
Tevye, a poor milkman and father of five daughters, struggles to maintain the traditions of his Jewish culture and religion in early twentieth century Imperial Russia. He and his family settle in a small village where the oppressive Tsar now orders the eviction of all Jews. His strong-minded daughters don’t help to make his life any easier when they decide to marry for love.
In this life-affirming tale, Tevye’s faith, love and pride help him endure in a life that is as precarious as a fiddler sitting on a roof.
