SCOTTSDALE – Desert Stages Theatre presents the ever poignant, epic musical, Fiddler on the Roof, Fri., Jan. 10 - Sun., Feb. 2, 2014, directed by Kyle C. Greene.
Fiddler on the Roof tells the story of Tevye, a poor milkman in 1900s Russia, and his lament as a father in a world of waning traditions. Tevye, Golde, his wife of 25 years and their five daughters experience family growing pains as outside influences of a changing world infringe upon their family and Jewish traditions in Czarist Russia.
Based on the Tevye and his Daughters (or Tevye the Dairyman) and other tales by Sholem Aleichem, Fiddler on the Roof debuted on Broadway in 1964. With music by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick and book by Joseph Stein, Fiddler on the Roof was the first musical theatre of its time to surpass 3,000 performances and is the sixteenth longest-running production in history. The highly acclaimed musical garnered nine Tony Awards including Best Musical, score, book, direction and choreography. Fiddler on the Roof went on to have a successful 1971 film adaptation, four Broadway revivals and a number international runs and tours.
