Fiddler on the Roof – original run
Broadway’s original “Fiddler on the Roof” opened in 1964 and was choreographed by Jerome Robbins. It was the first musical in history to have more than 3,000 performances. In addition to the other eight Tony Awards that year, the show also won the 1965 Tony Award for Best Musical. This critically acclaimed revival was performed on Broadway in 2015 and received three Tony nominations. Under the guidance of Tony Award winner Bartlett Sher, “The Violinist on the Roof” returned to Broadway in 2015 (50th anniversary). Sher directed the tour, which started in October 2018.
