The Novato Theater Company promises a “different sort of Fiddler” this Spring, with a production of Fiddler on the Roof that brings new life to one of the most popular musicals in history.
Set in the Imperial Russia in 1905, Fiddler on the Roof centers on Tevye, the father of five daughters, and his attempts to maintain his family and Jewish religious traditions while outside influences encroach upon their lives. He must cope both with the strong-willed actions of his three older daughters—and each one’s choice of husband—and with mounting persecution of Jews by the Tsar.
The original Broadway production held the record for the longest-running Broadway musical for almost 10 years. It spawned four Broadway revivals, a highly successful 1971 film adaptation, and the show has enjoyed enduring international popularity.
