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.
