The original Broadway production of “Fiddler on the Roof,” which opened in 1964, was the first musical in history to surpass 3,000 performances. The show won the 1965 Tony Award for Best Musical in addition to eight other Tonys that year. This acclaimed revival proudly introduces a new generation to the iconic musical adored across the globe.

“I think these stories are about adjustment and love of traditions, and the way that your ancestors lived, and having the modern world sort of crash into them and force them to amalgamate and change,” Hashmonay said in a Center for the Performing Arts interview.
