COST $20/ticket. Includes an outdoor reception before the show and during intermission.
Welcome back to Fiddler on the Roof, last seen on the Wagon Wheel stage in 1990! This show has become the 15th longest running Broadway musical with a total –in the original run—of 3,242 performances. Considered a classic musical, it depicts the struggle of families who attempt to survive in a hostile world, still holding true to their traditions. Recognizing that all cultures are challenged by change, this story is set in a Jewish village, Anatevka, Russia in 1905. The main characters are Tevye, the milkman, Golde, his wife, and their five daughters. Directed and choreographed by Jerome Robbins, Fiddler won 10 Tony awards in 1964, including Best Musical. Songs include “Tradition”, “Matchmaker, Matchmaker”, “If I Were a Rich Man”, and “Sunrise, Sunset”.
