Danny Burstein, Sheldon Harnick, and More to Sign New Fiddler on the Roof CDs
Cast members from Broadway's Fiddler on the Roof will celebrate the show's new cast recording with a concert and an album signing at the East 86th Street Barnes and Noble on Friday, March 18, at 4:30pm.
Danny Burstein, who leads the company as Tevye, and legendary lyricist Sheldon Harnick will be on hand to sign CDs with several other cast members as well as musical director Ted Sperling. A full guest list will be announced.
The Broadway Records release will include bonus tracks of cast members Adam Kantor and Alexandra Silber performing the cut song "Dear Sweet Sewing Machine," along with violinist Itzhak Perlman debuting "Excerpts From Fiddler on the Roof," arranged by iconic composer John Williams. The album, produced by David Lai, Ted Sperling, and Louise Gund, will have its worldwide release on March 18 and be available to purchase at the Broadway Theatre beginning March 10. The recording is currently available for pre-order at the theater, on Amazon.com, and on the label's website.
Featuring a book by Joseph Stein and a score by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick, Fiddler on the Roof is inspired by Sholom Alecheim's stories of the milkman Tevye, who tries to hold on to "tradition" as the world around him and his family in the little village of Anatevka changes. This Broadway production, directed by Tony Award winner Bartlett Sher (The King and I), is the show's sixth since its record-breaking debut in 1964.
Five-time Tony nominee Burstein stars opposite Tony nominee Jessica Hecht as Golde, Alexandra Silber as Tzeitel, Adam Kantor as Motel, Alix Korey as Yente, Samantha Massell as Hodel, Ben Rappaport as Perchik, Jessica Vosk as Fruma Sarah, Melanie Moore as Chava, Adam Dannheisser as Lazar Wolf, Aaron Young as Sasha, Nick Rehberger as Fyedka, and Karl Kenzler as the Constable.
