Fiddler on the Roof (A Fidler Afn Dakh)
na Stage 42
Direct from its sold-out run with multiple extensions downtown at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, the musical Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish is moving to 42nd Street!
The language of LOVE. The sound of TRADITION.
Don’t miss the beloved story of a community and its struggle to balance traditions and desires in a changing world. The little town of Anatevka will bustle with the sounds of mame-loshn in the Yiddish language adaptation of Fiddler.
A New York Times Critics' Pick, Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish “strikes a deep emotional chord” and “offers a kind of authenticity no other American Fiddler ever has” (The New York Times).
With direction by Oscar and Tony Award®-winner Joel Grey and the Yiddish translation by Shraga Friedman, this production has been hailed as “a richer, deeper interpretation” by The Wall Street Journal, a mitzvah” by Time Out New York, and AM New York gives it four stars, calling Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish “perfect.” Harold Prince, the legendary and original producer of Fiddler on the Roof on Broadway (1965 Winner of 9 Tony® Awards, including Best Musical) says, “If you have seen Fiddler before, you must see this production because it will make you feel you are seeing Fiddler for the first time.” One of the most celebrated musicals of all time, Fiddler on the Roof, based on Sholem Aleichem’s classic Yiddish stories, features music by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, and book by Joseph Stein, with the original New York stage production directed and choreographed by Jerome Robbins. Fiddler on the Roof is performed in Yiddish with English and Russian supertitles.
