This beloved story remains a timeless West End classic
Tevye, a dairy farmer, is an old-fashioned man who finds solace in tradition. Like many fathers in the close-knit community of Anatevka, he has raised his descendants to follow the Jewish customs of his long-gone ancestors. The time has now arrived for him to find husbands worthy of marrying his precious daughters. As tradition has it, he must find the perfect suitable match. But in 1905 Tsarist Russia, this is easier said than done as the country wobbles on thin ice, just one bad incident away from a violent uproar, a new era in which young people listen to their hearts and not their elders...
Fiddler on the Roof has enchanted theatregoers from all around the world since it first premiered on Broadway in 1964. After garnering a whopping nine Tony Awards, it was adapted into a blockbuster film that won an Oscar. The musical's most memorable songs include 'If I Were A Rich Man,' 'Matchmaker' and 'Tradition.'

Who is behind Fiddler on the Roof?
Fiddler on the Roof is a 1964 Broadway play and theatrical classic. With a book by legendary Jewish playwright Joseph Stein (Zorba), music by Jerry Bock (1959 Tony Award-winning composer for the musical Fiorello!) and lyrics by Jewish lyricist Sheldon Harnick, this much-loved musical is the cream of the crop when it comes to sensational productions.
Fiddler on the Roof was originally produced on the New York stage by Harold Prince and directed and choreographed by Jerome Robbins. The Playhouse Theatre transfer of Fiddler on the Roof is directed by Olivier Award-winning director Trevor Nunn and will feature Robbin's original Tony Award-winning choreography.
