WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Chaim Topol stars in the new national tour of Fiddler on the Roof. When his daughters choose suitors who defy his idea of a proper match, Tevye comes to realize, through a series of incidents that are at once comic and bittersweet, that his children will begin traditions of their own. At the story's close, the villagers of Anatevka are forced to leave their homes and even the sturdy mores that have guided everyday life begin to crumble. Paradoxically, it is the enforced loss of the rigid traditions and home life that Tevye has tried so tenaciously to preserve that leads the family to reconcile and draw closer still. In 1965, Jerome Robbins won dual Tony Awards for his direction and choreography of Fiddler on the Roof. In this national tour, both are recreated by director Sammy Dallas Bayes, choreographer of the Broadway revival.
