The currently running Broadway revival of Fiddler on the Roof, which will end its run on December 31, has announced plans for a national tour. The tour is set to begin in fall 2018, with further details to be announced.
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.
Directed by Tony winner Bartlett Sher, the revival production opened on December 20, 2015, at the Broadway Theatre, earning three Tony nominations, including Best Revival of a Musical. It is the winner of 2015 Drama Desk Awards for Best Leading Actor in a Musical (Danny Burstein) and Best Director of a Musical (Sher).
The cast of Fiddler on the Roof currently features six-time Tony Award nominee and Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Award winner Danny Burstein as Tevye, four-time Tony Award nominee Judy Kuhn as Golde, Jenny Rose Baker, Michael C. Bernardi, Adam Dannheisser, Mitch Greenberg, Adam Grupper, Adam Kantor, Karl Kenzler, Alix Korey, Samantha Massell, Melanie Moore, George Psomas, Ben Rappaport, Nick Rehberger, Nerghiz Sarki, Jeffrey Schecter, and Alexandra Silber.
