Bid To Meet FIDDLER ON THE ROOF's Danny Burstein and Support Epic Theatre Ensemble

After nearly ten years of climbing up Broadway's ranks, working steadily in small roles or as an understudy or replacement, Danny Burstein shot to Broadway stardom with his hilarious performance as the great lover Aldolpho in THE DROWSEY CHAPARONE. Great supporting turns in shows like SOUTH PACIFIC, WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN and FOLLIES followed, but up until now he's never been the guy to take the final bow on a Broadway stage.

That changed with this season's hit revival of the classic FIDDLER on THE ROOF. As Tevye, the humble dairyman trying to keep up with his modern-thinking daughters, Burstein captivates audience with both humor and strong dramatics.

Charitybuzz is hosting a new online auction for two tickets for the hit revival of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, followed by a meet and greet with Danny Burstein after the performance.

The winning bid will benefit the Epic Theatre Ensemble, a non-profit organization with a mission to create bold work with and for diverse communities that promotes vital discourse and social change. Visit epictheatreensemble.org.
