Set in the Pale of Settlement in Imperial Russia in or around the year 1905, Fiddler on the Roof is a musical with music by Jerry Bock, book by Joseph Stein, and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick. This work of art was inspired by "Tevye and His Daughters" (also known as "Tevye the Dairyman"), a story by Sholem Aleichem. Tevye, a milkman in the village of Anatevka, is the protagonist and he is having a hard time keeping his family's Jewish traditions alive as external forces enter their lives. Tevye must overcome his growing distaste for the men his three older daughters want to marry in order to appreciate their unique personalities and their need to marry for love. The Jews are forced to leave their neighborhood because of a decree issued by the tsar.
The show won nine Tony Awards, including those for best musical, score, book, direction, and choreography. It was turned into a popular film in 1971, and its five subsequent Broadway revivals have all been massively successful. It's also been used in a lot of regional and academic productions of plays. Expect to be inspired as fan favorites like "Tradition," "Sunrise, Sunset," "If I Were a Rich Man," "Matchmaker, Matchmaker," and "To Life (L'Chaim!)" are sung. Fans of musical theater should not miss this.
