Fiddler on the Roof

Fiddler on the Roof
A musical theatre tradition, Tevye the Dairyman, tries to protect his daughters and his way of life from a changing world.

Winner of nine Tony Awards when it debuted in 1964, Fiddler on the Roof is the brainchild of Broadway legends, Jerome Robbins and Harold Prince; songwriters, Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick; and bookwriter, Joseph Stein. Touching audiences worldwide with its humor, warmth and honesty, this universal show is a staple of the musical theatre canon.

Set in the little village of Anatevka, the story centers on Tevye, a poor milkman, and his five daughters. With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community, Tevye tries to protect his daughters and instill them with traditional values in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia. Rich in historical and ethnic detail, Fiddler on the Roof's universal theme of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness.

The show features a star turn in Tevye, among the most memorable roles in musical theatre. MTI's comprehensive choreographic guide allows productions to retain original director/choreographer, Jerome Robbins', classic staging. With iconic and beloved songs such as "Sunrise, Sunset," "If I Were a Rich Man" and "Matchmaker, Matchmaker," Fiddler on the Roof is the perfect mix of audience-pleasing humor and heart.

Hi, I'm directing Fiddler this winter/spring, and was wondering which recording available on iTunes is most like the licensed score and is most complete. I have the OBC, and it is sorely lacking some important pieces of music.

Hi, im a 17 year old who was just cast in the role of Tevye at a local youth theater. I don't think I will have time to grow a beard like Topol's fabulous one.. but I was wondering if anyone knew of any great online theatre websites who would have some great very realistic beards.. (because Tevye was not 17 not to mention that fact he couldn't shave his beard in the first place)
