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.The show features a star turn in Tevye, among the most memorable roles in musical theatre. Original director/choreographer Jerome Robbins' staging is legendary, and available from MTI in a comprehensive choreographic guide. Its celebrated score by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick, features songs loved the world over: "Sunrise, Sunset," "If I Were A Rich Man" and "Matchmaker," to name a few. FIDDLER ON THE ROOF is simply Broadway at its very best.

MISS SAIGON in Broadway MISS SAIGON
KANSAS CITY STARLIGHT
9/7-9/13/2014
A classic love story is brought up-to-date in one of the most stunning theatrical spectacles of all time. In MISS SAIGON, Alain Boublil andClaude-Michel Schonberg (the creators of LES MIS…RABLES), along with  Richard Maltby,Jr., bring Puccini's Madame Butterfly to the modern world in a moving testament to the human spirit and a scathing indictment of the tragedies of war. In the turmoil of the Vietnam War, an American soldier and a Vietnamese girl fall in love, only to be separated during the fall of Saigon. Their struggles to find each other over the ensuing years ends in tragedy for her and a fighting chance for the child he never knew he had. An international sensation, MISS SAIGON is an epic, daring pop opera that is universal in its emotional power even as it deals with controversial, contemporary issues. Its sung-through pop-inflected score gives a multi-ethnic cast of strong pop singers an opportunity to shine, in showstopping numbers like "I Still Believe," "Why God Why?" and "The American Dream." Meanwhile, its fluid cinematic structure gives directors and designers a field day. Raw and uncompromising, MISS SAIGON is an intensely personal story of the losses we suffer and the sacrifices we make in a world gone mad.
