FIDDLER ON THE ROOF
Thursday 21 March - Saturday 15 June 2019
"This Fiddler raises the roof. A note-perfect production." - The Guardian
Direct from its sold-out run at the Menier Chocolate Factory, Tony and Olivier award-winning director Trevor Nunn’s ‘exuberant revival’ (The Telegraph) of the classic Broadway musical Fiddler on the Roof transfers to the West End for a strictly limited run. The Playhouse Theatre will be specially transformed into an immersive space for this ‘shiveringly intimate chamber musical about family’ (The Times).
Old traditions and young love collide in this joyous and timely celebration of life. Tevye’s daughters’ unexpected choice of husbands opens his heart to new possibilities, as his close-knit community also feel winds of change blowing through their tiny village.
Featuring the iconic score including Tradition, Matchmaker, Matchmaker, Sunrise, Sunset and If I Were a Rich Man, and packed with Jerome Robbins’ original Tony award-winning choreography, Fiddler on the Roof "bursts from the stage" (Financial Times), bringing new life to one of the most beloved musicals of all time.
