Live at the Playhouse Theatre
Direct from its sold-out run at the Menier Chocolate Factory, Tony and Olivier Award-winning Trevor Nunn’s ‘exuberant revival’ (Daily Telegraph) of the classic Broadway musical Fiddler on the Roof has transferred to the West End for a strictly limited run. The Playhouse Theatre has been specially transformed into an intimate space which will envelop you in the beloved story of Tevye and his family.
Old traditions and young love collide in this joyous and timely celebration of life starring Andy Nyman as Tevye, Maria Friedman as Golde and Anita Dobson as the Matchmaker, Yente.
Tevye, is an old-fashioned man who finds comfort and solace in tradition. Living in the close-knit community of Anatevka, it has finally become time for Tevye to find his precious daughters husbands. As is tradition, they must be the perfect, suitable match. However, 1905 Tsarist Russia is walking on thin ice, with revolution and a new era on the horizon, will the young listen to their hearts? Or to their elders?
Tevye’s daughters’ unexpected choice of husbands opens his heart to new possibilities, as is close-knit community also feels the winds of change blowing through their tiny village.
