Fiddler On The Roof in Yiddish

Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish

Directed by Oscar and Tony Award®-winner Joel Grey

A New York Times Critics’ Pick

Fiddler on the Roof  “strikes a deep emotional chord” and “offers a kind of authenticity no other American Fiddler ever has” (The New York Times).

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.

With direction by Oscar and Tony Award®-winner Joel Grey, this production “speaks to us all” (Newsday). It 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 “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.”
