FIDDLER ON THE ROOF
Written by Joseph Stein and based on Sholem Aleichem’s short story Tevye and His Daughters
Directed by Jim Tropp
Set in 1905 in a small Jewish village in Russia, it is the story of dairyman Tevye and his attempts to preserve his family’s traditions in a changing world. Tevye’s daughter Tzeitel wants to marry a poor tailor instead of the middle-aged butcher her father has chosen for her in the tradition of arranged marriages. Tevye is forced to choose between his daughter’s happiness and his culture’s beloved traditions.
Fiddler on the Roof won nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Actor (Zero Mostel), Best Supporting Actress (Maria Karnilova) and Best Director (Jerome Robbins) as well as awards for author, producer, choreographer, costume design and composer and lyricist. In 1991 it won another Tony Award as Best Revival of a Musical. A 1971 movie version directed by Norman Jewison was nominated for Best Picture and picked up three Academy Awards.
The musical produced well-known songs such as Sunrise, Sunset, If I Were a Rich Man, and Matchmaker.
