Fiddler on the Roof

Fiddler on the Roof

Playhouse Theatre · 21 MAR - 02 NOV

Old traditions and young love collide in this joyous and timely celebration of life.

“Trevor Nunn’s revival of this classic musical went down a treat at the Menier Chocolate Factory and moves straight into the West End with barely a moment in between for the cast to pause for breath. Fiddler on the Roof “can appear hokey” wrote one critic “but not here. Nunn’s magnificent revival mines the meaning from each word and every note.””

Overview

The Playhouse Theatre will be specially transformed into an immersive space for this ‘shiveringly intimate chamber musical about family’ (The Times).

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.
