Superbly crafted with historical and ethnic significance, Fiddler has touched audiences all over the world with its humor, warmth and honesty. Its universal theme of tradition transcends barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, evoking tears of both joy and sadness. The featured role of Tevye is one of the most memorable in Broadway musical theatre, as this poor peasant dairyman tries to maintain in his family the longstanding traditions of his Jewish heritage in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia. With a musical score including If I Were A Rich Man, Matchmaker, To Life!, and Sunrise, Sunset.
