A very, very good production of a wonderful show

See it if you know/love Fiddler; a terrific way to revisit! Gr staging, gr singing, strong acting. Lg cast, barebones prodn. Laughs & tears! Memorable

Don’t see it if you dislike reading supertitles (cumbersome). Sh cut Chavela dance. Rude audience (cells ring/loud talk). Nice theater; bring a sweater.

More information about Fiddler On The Roof

Fiddler on the Roof may be a theatre classic with six Broadway productions to its name, but audiences will now hear the musical masterpiece completely anew — in Yiddish. Get Fiddler on the Roof tickets on TodayTix now.

Fiddler on the Roof is written by Joseph Stein with music by Jerry Bock and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick. Shraga Friedman has translated their iconic show completely into Yiddish. But for those who don’t speak Tevye’s native tongue, the performance is accompanied by supertitles in English and Russian. Plus, you're nonetheless guaranteed to recognize Fiddler on the Roof's iconic songs like "Tradition," "If I Were a Rich Man," and "Matchmaker, Matchmaker."

Directed by Oscar and Tony Award winner Joel Grey, the Fiddler on the Roof musical is set in a fictional shtetl, Anatevka, in what is now Ukraine during the late 1800s. The show tells the story of a Jewish milkman, Tevye, striving to maintain tradition in an ever-evolving world as his three oldest daughters — Tzeitel, Hodel, and Chava (Tsaytl, Hodl, and Khave in Yiddish) — reach the age of marriage. Tevye struggles to keep up with the times when the young women buck the system and ask for his blessing to wed the ones they love instead of jumping into previously arranged marriages.

This National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene production of Fiddler on the Roof premiered in 2018 at the Museum of Jewish Heritage. The show was so popular that it got extended three times and eventually moved to Stage 42 off Broadway the following year. The show ultimately won the Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, and Off-Broadway Alliance Awards for Outstanding Revival of a Musical along with a New York Drama Critics Circle Special Citation.

Many of the cast members from that production are returning for the 2022 revival, led by Steven Skybell in his Lucille Lortel Award-winning role as Tevye.

NYTF's show is the only Fiddler on the Roof off Broadway production, but the musical has appeared on Broadway six times in 50 years (between 1964 and 2015) and was the first show to ever surpass 3,000 performances there. Zero Mostel originated the role of Tevye and reprised it in 1976. Actors such as Alfred Molina, Chaim Topol, and most recently, Tony Award winner Danny Burstein have since taken on the iconic part on Broadway.

What to Watch For

  • Fiddler on the Roof is based on multiple stories by Sholem Aleichem. The musical mostly draws from Tevye and his Daughters (also called Tevye the Dairyman), but the Yiddish version also translates the iconic song "If I Were a Rich Man" into "If I Were a Rothschild" (“Ven Ikh Bin a Rothshild”), the name of another Aleichem tale.
  • NYTF's revival is not the first Fiddler on the Roof production in Yiddish. Shraga Friedman translated the piece for a one-night concert in Israel in 1965.
  • The National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene is the longest continuously producing Yiddish theatre company in the world.
  • Seven hundred actors auditioned for the production’s 27-person cast so the creative team could test the performers’ Yiddish and ability to make adjustments in that language.
  • Director Joel Grey rehearsed the cast in both English and Yiddish. However, he does not speak Yiddish himself, but he said, “I’ve certainly been around a lot of Yiddish in my life — my father was a great Yiddish comedian.”
  • Zalmen Mlotek, NYTF’s artistic director, approached Grey to direct the piece. Mlotek also served as the production’s music director during its first New York run in 2018.
