Mainstage Production History

It's time to continue the "tradition" of great American musicals as we end our spectacular 201st season with one of Broadway's greatest musicals of all time, Fiddler on the Roof. This multi-award-winning musical has captured the hearts of people all over the world and finally makes its highly anticipated debut on the Walnut stage with an all-new production. As Tevye tries to hold onto his religion, his Russian-Jewish traditions and his five daughters, he learns that life is "as shaky as a fiddler on the roof." You'll dance with "Matchmaker, Matchmaker;" laugh out loud with "If I Were a Rich Man;" and find tears in your eyes with "Sunrise, Sunset" and "Anatevka." This is a story that will last forever in your heart. Let's celebrate together. To Life! L'Chaim!
