The Rothschilds

The Rothschilds
The famous banking family rises from the Jewish ghetto to the royal courts of Europe in this tale of family, acceptance and perseverance.

With its engaging and uncompromising book, The Rothschilds is one of the boldest book musicals of its time, a heartfelt testament to family, dignity, honor and unflinching tenacity. Nominated for 9 Tony Awards, The Rothschilds is the final collaboration from the incomparable Jerry Bock & Sheldon Harnick (Fiddler On The Roof, She Loves Me).

Shrewd, charismatic, resourceful and ambitious, Mayer Rothschild and his five sons struggle to overcome the prejudice of late eighteenth century European society as they build a family banking business which takes them from the Jewish ghetto to the courts of the rich and powerful. On the way, they come to dominate European finance, help
fund Napoleon's defeat, and secure a Declaration of Rights for their people from the Crowned Heads of State. It's truly Europe's most famous rags-to-riches story

Inadvertently informative in nature, The Rothschilds, much like Fiddler On The Roof, is an important, impactful, and must see piece for all audiences. Its large cast size creates ample opportunities to feature an array of talented actor-singers who will love sinking their teeth into the ambitious and bold libretto/score. The Rothschilds would be a great option if a theatre company had previous success with another of Bock & Harnick's musicals (which they will undoubtedly will have had).
