Fiddler on the Roof was written by Jerry Bock (music), Sheldon Harnick (lyrics), and Joseph Stein (book).; The story centers on Tevye and his attempts to maintain his Jewish religious and cultural traditions as outside influences encroach upon the family’s lives. The story is set in Imperial Russia in 1905 and is based on Tevye and his Daughters (or Tevye the Dairyman) and other tales by Sholem Aleichem. Tevye must cope both with the strong-willed actions of his three older daughters, who wish to marry for love each one’s choice of a husband moves further away from the customs of their Jewish faith and heritage and with the edict of the Tsar that evicts the Jews from their village.
The original Broadway production of the show, which opened in 1964, had the first musical theatre run in history to surpass 3,000 performances. Fiddler held the record for the longest-running Broadway musical for almost 10 years until Grease surpassed its run. It remains the seventeenth longest-running show in Broadway history. Fiddler won nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical, score, book, direction and choreography.
