"Fiddler on the Roof," based on the stories of Sholom Aleichem, has captured the hearts of people all over 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.
In the little village of Anatevka, Tevye, a poor milkman, is trying to keep his family's traditions in place. Yet, times are changing. And when Tevye's daughters want to make their own matches, he must choose between his own daughters' happiness and those beloved traditions that keep the outside world at bay. Yet it is Tevye's love of his family, pride and faith that help him face the dangerous forces in Anatevka that threaten to destroy the very life he and his fellow villagers are trying to preserve.
Winner of nine Tony awards, including Best Musical, "Fiddler on the Roof" is filled with a rousing, heartwarming score, including "Tradition," "Matchmaker, Matchmaker," "If I Were A Rich Man" and "Sunrise, Sunset." No other musical has so magically woven music, dance, poignancy and laughter into such an electrifying and unforgettable experience.
The New York Daily News wrote, "'Fiddler on the Roof' is a universal story of hope, love and acceptance, a stunning, joyful and jubilant musical masterpiece."
