About the show

Directed by Tony award winner Bartlett Sher, this new Broadway revival of Bock & Harnick's classic musical follows Jewish milkman Tevye, who strives to maintain "Tradition" as his daughters fall in love. More…

The original production won ten Tony Awards including a special Tony for becoming the longest-running Broadway musical of all time. The revival, from the creative team behind 'The King and I', will be based on the Tony Award-winning original conception and choreography of Jerome Robbins, and will feature choreography by Israeli-born artist Hofesh Shechter. This heartwarming musical is the story of fathers and daughters, husbands and wives, and the timeless traditions that define faith and family.
