WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
This musical tells the beloved story of the small, tradition-steeped town of Anatevka, Russia, where Jews and Russians live in delicate balance. During the course of the show, the time-honored traditions of Anatevka are both embraced and challenged by Tevye, a poor dairyman, as he 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. It's a story that captures the essential human longings for love, community, success, freedom, family, and meaning.
Fiddler on the Roof was the winner of nine Tony Awards, including best musical.
