To Life – L’chaim! The iconic musical Fiddler On The Roof is back in the West End for a limited time only, playing until 2 November!
Transferring from the Menier Chocolate Factory after a successful (and sold-out) run, Fiddler On The Roof tickets have been in hot demand for performances at the Playhouse Theatre. Directed by the Olivier Award-winning and Tony Award-winning Trevor Nunn, this critically acclaimed production has proven a popular revival of the Broadway classic, having been the first production of the show on the London stage since May 2007.
Fiddler On The Roof tells the story of Tevye and his five daughters. Tevye’s Jewish faith means a lot to him, and even under difficult circumstances, he strives to maintain it. From his daughter’s choosing husbands who aren’t as traditionally Jewish as Tevye would like, to the Tsar evicting Jewish people from their village, Tevye has many battles to face. But his daughters’ unexpected choice in husbands starts to open up Tevye’s heart to new possibilities, and his close-knit community soon needs him.
Featuring the unforgettable score by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick, you’ll have to stop yourself singing along to classic lines from the show, with songs including Tradition, Matchmaker, Matchmaker, Sunrise, Sunset and If I Were A Rich Man. Add in Jerome Robbins’ original Tony Award-winning choreography, alongside new choreography by Matt Cole, and you’ll soon see that this production of Fiddler On The Roof unleashes a new life into one of the most beloved musicals of all time. Even the Playhouse Theatre is getting into the spirit of the show, transforming into an immersive space during the show’s run.
