Exhilarating, joyous and inspiring, the spectacular musical event that is Fiddler on the Roof, is back to touch people’s hearts.
Packed with some of the best-loved songs in the history of musicals, this magnificent show struck such a chord in audiences that it became one of the longest running productions on Broadway and won 9 Tony awards. This nationwide tour features star of stage and screen Joe McGann, best known for his role as Charlie Burrows in The Upper Hand, in the lead role of the man who dreams of riches, respect and a quiet family life.
In a Jewish village in Czarist Russia dairyman Tevye (Joe McGann) is doing his best to preserve tradition in the face of a changing world, but when his daughters refuse the matchmaker’s advice and marry for love, Tevye must choose between their happiness and those beloved traditions.
Fiddler on the Roof is blessed with a gloriously rousing score full of memorable melodies, which, bound by a moving and compelling storyline, heartwarming humour and colourful characters, Jerome Robbins’ dramatic original choreography, wonderfully evocative sets and costumes and sheer joie de vivre, make this the musical to take to your hearts!
Share the memories of thousands of theatregoers who have enjoyed this eternal slice of musical history!
Songs include Tradition, Matchmaker Matchmaker, Sunrise Sunset, To Life! and of course If I Were a Rich Man.
