Fiddler on the Roof, the Tony-award winning musical, previews February 1 and will open February 8 at Theatre at the Center, 1040 Ridge Road; it closes March 11. One of the most successful Broadway productions of all time, Fiddler on the Roof will be directed by Bill Pullinsi and stars Lee Pelty as Tevye, who won a Jeff Award for his performance in the same role at Candlelight Dinner Playhouse.
Set in 1905, Fiddler on the Roof takes place in Anatevka, a small Jewish village in Russia. The story revolves around the dairyman Tevye and his attempts to preserve his family's traditions in the face of a changing world. When his eldest daughter, Tzeitel, begs him to let her marry a poor tailor rather than the middle-aged butcher that he has already chosen for her, Tevye must choose between his own daughter's happiness and those beloved traditions that keep the outside world at bay. Meanwhile, there are other forces at work in Anatevka, dangerous forces which threaten to destroy the very life he is trying to preserve. The exhilarating score features Broadway favorites including Sunrise, Sunset, Matchmaker, Matchmaker and To Life.
In addition to Lee Pelty as Tevye, Fiddler on the Roof stars Iris Lieberman as Golde, Renee Matthews as Yente, Dale Benson as Rabbi and Larry Adams as Constable.
