FIDDLER ON THE ROOF
March 13 - May 30, 2015
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.
Fiddler on the Roof is a musical theatre classic that took its first
bow on Broadway in 1964 starring Zero Mostel as Tevye and Bea Arthur as
Yente, under the direction of legendary Broadway director/choreographer
Jerome Robbins. At the 1965 Tony Awards it was nominated for ten
awards and took home nine of them including Best Musical, Best Actor and
Actress, and Best Direction of a Musical. The original production ran
for eight years and over 3,200 performances. By the time it closed in
the summer of 1972, it was the longest running musical in Broadway history.
Fiddler has had four Broadway revivals since the original and a major
motion picture film adaptation released in 1971. A brand new Broadway
revival is currently in the works for a November 2015 opening.
This spring's production will be Fiddler on the Roof's second run at
Way Off Broadway. The first was during the 2006 Season and to date
remains one of the theatre's most successful shows at the Box Office.
With a brand new production, Way Off Broadway is ready to return to the
little village of Anatevka and once again learn about family and tradition.
