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.

Best show I've seen

Great show. Really great acting and singing. Haven't seen the movie but really strong, funny and poignant story if you're not familiar with it. Avoid the Upper Balcony seats though.
