BWW Review: The MUNY's Wonderfully Special Production of FIDDLER ON THE ROOFBWW Review: The MUNY's Wonderfully Special Production of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF
by Chris Gibson - Aug 4, 2016

Set during a period of great turmoil just prior to the Russian revolution (1905), FIDDLER ON THE ROOF is a joyous celebration of life in times of uncertainty. Most versions I've seen have been scaled down considerably, focusing on the more intimate scenes. That's certainly not the case here.

by Lauren Gienow - Jun 29, 2016

The Stratford Festival's first ever staging of Stephen Sondheim's A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC is happening this season at the Avon Theatre.
