Broadway Theatre (Broadway)
1681 Broadway New York, NY

Fiddler on the Roof is a musical with music by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, and book by Joseph Stein, set in Tsarist Russia in 1905. It is based on Tevye and his Daughters (or Tevye the Dairyman) and other tales by Sholem Aleichem. The story centers on Tevye, the father of five daughters, and his attempts to maintain his family and Jewish religious traditions while outside influences encroach upon their lives. He must cope both with the strong-willed actions of his three older daughters-each one's choice of husband moves further away from the customs of his faith-and with the edict of the Tsar that evicts the Jews from their village.

FEATURED REVIEWS FOR Fiddler on the Roof

‘Fiddler on the Roof’ review: Revival worth the wait
9 / 10

In perfect sync with that balancing act is Danny Burstein's portrayal of Tevye, the philosopher milkman first defined by the fabulously eccentric Zero Mostel and reconsidered in countless variations. Burstein, heretofore a star only to New York theater lovers, embodies a gentle, sweet yet powerful, profoundly likable man whose debates with God have the bemused inevitability of truth. Burstein also sings the role better than any Tevye in my experience.

Fiddler on the Roof: EW stage review
8 / 10

There are moments of great levity in this production - songs about matchmakers and raising your glass for a toast, among all the classics the show is known for - but its quieter moments were even greater standouts. There's a Sabbath prayer dotted with candle lights in Tevye's home and the houses beyond, the haunting 'Sunrise, Sunset' during a wedding scene, and wrenching goodbyes between father and daughters. And everything culminates in an end that harkens back to the show's beginning, when you'll see that red coat again, a reminder that people are still forced to leave behind the homes they love. B+
