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

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.

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

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.

It was an engaging production, which I enjoyed, but it would have been useful to know about the very long first half.

Excellent show with some great songs and really good performances.

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!

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....

I booked this show on a last minute whim and wasn't expecting that much (I didn't know anything about the story) and I LOVED it, such brilliant acting, singing and dancing.

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.

If I could give it 10 stars I would. Absolutely marvellous. An emotional rollercoaster.

Although we enjoyed Fiddler, throughout the show we were distracted by the audience member who appeared to be sitting in the set, stage right...especially when she put on her bright orange jacket.

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!

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 .
