The Marriott Theatre, 10 Marriott Drive, begins its 35th anniversary 2010 season with the internationally acclaimed Broadway musical FIDDLER ON THE ROOF. The production previews February 17th, opens February 24th and runs through April 25th. David H. Bell (OLIVER, SHENANDOAH, THE BOWERY BOYS) will direct and choreograph.

Winner of nine Tony Awards, FIDDLER ON THE ROOF has captured the hearts of people across the globe. A powerful and bittersweet celebration of the human spirit, FIDDLER ON THE ROOF is the tale of a family struggling to maintain their balance in a changing world. It is 1905, on the eve of the Russian Revolution, as Tevye, a Jewish milkman, and his wife search for acceptable husbands for their three lively daughters. While the daughters are determined to break with tradition and marry the men they love, Tevye must choose between their happiness and his beloved traditions that keep the outside world at bay. Meanwhile, the family begins to face larger forces as Jews are being persecuted in their homeland, threatening the very life Tevye strives to preserve.

The original Broadway production, which opened in 1964, was the first musical in history to surpass the 3,000 performance mark. It spawned four Broadway revivals, an Academy Award-winning 1971 film, and numerous international productions. FIDDLER ON THE ROOF features an exhilarating and poignant score including "Sunrise, Sunset," "If I Were a Rich Man" and "Matchmaker." The show's music is by Jerry Bock, lyrics are by Sheldon Harnick, and the book is by Joseph Stein.

FIDDLER ON THE ROOF stars award-winning actors Ross Lehman as Tevye and Paula Scrofano as Golde and an all-star cast including Justin Berkobien as Perchik, Dara Cameron as Hodel, David Girolmo as Lazar Wolf, Andrew Keltz as Motel, Jessie Mueller as Tzeitel, Patrick Sarb as Fyedka, Laura Scheinbaum as Chava, and Craig Spidle as the Constable. Also featured are Matthew Crowle, Arielle Leigh Dayan, Rebecca Finnegan, Jennifer T.
