Fiddler on the Roof description

Fiddler on the Roof – A brand new version of the '60s classic

In 1971 Fiddler on the Roof, the movie, wowed audiences around the world, an Oscar winning adaption of the original Broadway musical that ran for almost a decade. This story has already delighted millions. Now the awesome Trevor Nunn, a British national treasure, has brought it zinging back to life, and it's due at the Playhouse theatre in spring 2019.

As the Guardian said, giving the musical a four star review, ‘This Fiddler raises the roof. A note-perfect production.’ The many great reviews it has attracted are no surprise really, since the original run at the Menier Chocolate Factory sold out in no time, with tickets going like hot cakes from the start. Maybe it's a nostalgia thing, maybe it's the thrill of seeing a fresh new version of a popular tale, but whatever the reason, the Tony and Olivier award-winning director Trevor Nunn’s ‘exuberant revival’ (The Telegraph) of this magical Broadway classic is proving a huge hit.

Best of all, the venue will be transformed especially for the event into an exciting immersive space to display this perfectly-tailored production to perfection. You'll love seeing ancient and new traditions colliding in this incredibly joyful celebration of life, the universe and everything... with a satisfyingly dark side.

The story? When Tevye’s three rebellious elder daughters choose their own husbands, their father realises life is changing, and he must change with the times. Their choices are unexpected, but he does everything he can to open his heart and mind to new possibilities. At the same time the wider community that lives in his tiny, remote village is also feeling the uncanny winds of change.

But it's the songs that really mark this musical as a work of genius. Even if you've never seen the film you'll recognise some of the show tunes, especially the incredibly popular If I Were a Rich Man. It's joined by a multitude more tunes including the brilliant Tradition, Matchmaker Matchmaker, Sunrise Sunset and more, complemented beautifully by Jerome Robbins’ original Tony award-winning choreography.

The Financial Times says it 'bursts from the stage’, 'bringing new life to one of the most beloved musicals of all time.' The Telegraph says, 'The tears ring true in Trevor Nunn's exuberant revival’. The Evening Standard calls it ‘a defiant portrait of Jewish resilience’ and The Times calls it 'shiveringly intimate'. Apparently Andy Nyman is a perfect fit as Tevye and the Daily Mail comments that ‘Judy Kuhn provides musical class’.

Who is this show for?
This lively, colourful, magical musical is probably best-suited to people aged 10 and over.

Fantastic show, really wonderful to see how the crew and cast put a film onto a stage so wonderfully. Singing, dancing and acting really fantastic with the right amount of humour and sadness

Amazing evening in London

Recently my wife and I were in London and saw Fiddler on the Roof at the Playhouse theatre. The show was amazing and highly recommended to all. The acting was amazing and the music was breathtaking. Not a bad seat in this small theatre. It does not disappoint.

A must see.

The best musical I have seen in a long time. Very intimate setting due to size of theatre. Very moving and true to the story and original film. Acting superb. A lot of Irish accents though. Would definitely go again

Impressive re-working of an age old story

Fabulous singing and dancing, humour and a story as relevant today as it was then. Not suitable for young children, but teens should find inspiration in everyone's traditions in a fast moving world. Big opening, but, as a theatre production, it could benefit from a nod to the resiliance of people to find a new life.

A night out at Anatevka

This is a great show which, so many years after its original performance - movie and theatre - has still not lost its attraction and appeal. The actor who reprises the main role played originally by Topol is magnificent. He makes the public cry and laugh at the same time. And of course the songs and lyrics are superb. The Theatre itself is literally a 5 minute walk from Embankment underground station. All in all, a very pleasant night out for my husband and I, which brought back many memories of the time when we saw the original play and movie. Highly recommend that you go!

Fiddler the Fabulous

Throughly enjoyed show and the music and dancing soared up to us in the Upper Circle...we were in row E seats 5 & 6 had a partially restricted view which was probably worse the further up you went...but then I think the information does mention that....

Moving and powerful

This was an excellent show throughout. It was a suitably drab scene with most people in dark colours, but the acting was brilliant and made the scene come alive and the people seem colourful. It was moving and funny all in one. An excellent cast and very similar to the film, which I have always loved.

Can't see half the stage from upper circle!!

This is one of my favourite shows, however left me very disappointed due to terrible visibility from my seats. Don't bother buying tickets for Upper Circle. You will not see half the stage from ANY seat up there. Not worth the money!

An insight to how things were !!

I took a friend of mine there for her birthday. We were seated in the upper circle the 2nd row from the front, so every time the people lent forward we couldn't see the stage which was a shame. The show itself was brilliant , the singing , dancing and acting. The set itself was very well thought out and just amazing. I would recommend couples and theatregoers for this show, with either being up higher in the circle or better than that , in the stalls. We both loved it .
