Fiddler on the Roof Cincinnati Tickets
Fiddler on the Roof Cincinnati TicketsFiddler on the Roof is a classic 1964 musical about cultural assimilation, tradition, family, religion and history. For a decade it was the longest-running musical in Broadway history with 3,242 performances, only to be surpassed by Grease. It later spawned an Oscar-winning 1971 film adaptation with music from John Williams. Based on a series of short stories by Yiddish writer Sholem Aleichem, Fiddler on the Roof is set in a Russian shtetl at the beginning of the 20th century. A poor Jewish milkman named Tevye is torn between the traditional imperatives of his culture and the independent spirit of his daughters, who wish to marry for love. If you are in the Cincinnati area, then you can catch a live performance of the classic musical at a local venue.
Miracle of MiraclesFiddler on the Roof was a collaborative effort between composer Jerry Bock — who, throughout his career, won a Tony, Grammy, Emmy and a Pulitzer Prize — and his longtime collaborator and lyricist Sheldon Harnick. Oscar and Tony winner Jerome Robbins, who had previously worked on The King and I and West Side Story, was brought in as director. Featuring a book by American playwright Joseph Stein, Fiddler on the Roof defied easy classifications. It was considered to be a large financial and creative risk as nothing like it had been produced on Broadway before, but the creative team managed to mold it into a complex, nuanced portrayal of Yiddish cultural heritage that appealed to a wider audience. After a brief tryout period in Detroit and Washington, Fiddler on the Roof premiered at the Imperial Theatre on September 22nd, 1964. An instant sensation, the original Broadway production won nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, Best Director, Best Producer, Best Choreography and several technical awards. Both Zero Mostel and Maria Karnilova took home the respective acting awards. Since the original production, Fiddler on the Roof has been revived on Broadway several times, including in 1981, 1990, 2004 and 2015. The 2015 revival, directed by Bartlett Sher, received a 2017 Grammy Award nomination for Best Musical Theater Album.
