Fiddler on the Roof, which debuted in 1964, is one of the most beloved musicals of all time. It was the first Broadway musical to run more than 3,000 performances.
It was made into an equally beloved 1971 film starring Israeli actor Chaim Topol in the central role of Tevye, a poor Jewish milkman with five daughters living in a village in imperial Russia in the decade prior to the Revolution. The well-known story tells of his struggle to adapt to changes in culture and tradition, including the marriages of his older daughters to “unsuitable” men and the eventual dispersal around the globe of the close-knit village population following a pogrom.
The film will be screened at the Cedar Lee Theatre Tue 1/9 and Sat 1/13. Be warned: it’s nearly three-and-a-half hours long so commit your time accordingly.
