The Phoenix Theatre Company will present the beloved musical, "Fiddler on the Roof," with music by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, and book by Joseph Stein. This production, directed by Staś Kmieć and running from May 22nd to July 7th, promises to be a captivating journey into tradition, love, faith, and resilience.

Set in the village of Anatevka, the story follows Tevye, a humble milkman, as he tries to maintain his Jewish traditions amidst changing times and the challenges of life in early 20th-century Russia. The unforgettable score features iconic songs such as "Tradition," "Matchmaker, Matchmaker," "If I Were a Rich Man," and "Sunrise, Sunset." Two fragments of songs cut from the original production, "Any Day Now" and "When Messiah Comes," have also been added.

"This is a simple story about a simple man told simply," said Staś Kmieć, director of the production.

Kmieć has directed/choreographed multiple productions of "Fiddler on the Roof" throughout the world, including the new production in Yiddish that was a surprise hit on the New York theater scene (2019 Drama Desk Award, Outer Critics Circle Award, and New York Drama Critics' Circle Citation for "Best Musical Revival"). As a celebration of the indomitable human spirit, Kmieć's directing style honors the intent and tradition of Jerome Robbins while adding more choreography and breaking away from some of the traditional staging at times.

With its rich history and award-winning music, the show explores the balance between tradition and change both on stage and behind the scenes.

The cast for "Fiddler on the Roof" at The Phoenix Theatre Company includes Xandra Abney, Dani Apple*, Nick Barakos, Geoff Belliston, Michael Bingham*, Dallyn Brunck, Aaron Cammack, Anthony DaSilva*, Scott Davidson*, Renee Kathleen Koher, Teddy Ladley, Matthew Liotine*, Erikka Makić*, Ben Massouras, Ellie Mitchell, Josh Pike, Parker Pitt, Nick Raynor*, James Monroe Števko*, Ben Tyler, Jodie Weiss, Lori Wilner* and James Zannelli*. The understudy cast includes Shani Barrett, Liam Boyd, Bonnie Romney, and Marshall Glass.
