ABOUT THE SHOW
The heartwarming story of fathers and daughters, husbands and wives, and the timeless traditions that define faith and family. Featuring the Broadway classics "To Life (L’Chaim!)," "If I Were a Rich Man," "Sunrise, Sunset," "Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and "Tradition," Fiddler on the Roof introduces a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy. To love! To life!
- The original production of Fiddler was the first musical in Broadway history to surpass 3,000 performances.
- While the show’s title was suggested by various paintings by Marc Chagall, there is no single canvass to which it explicitly refers.
The musical’s original production opened on Broadway in 1964, winning nine 1965 Tony Awards including Best Musical. It has previously been revived on Broadway four times. It was made into an Oscar-winning 1971 Hollywood film. The show is based on Tevye the Dairyman and other tales by the Yiddish author Sholem Aleichem (1859-1916).
