In one of the latest works by Pulitzer Prize-winning David Mamet (American Buffalo, Glengarry Glen Ross), two attorneys are charged with defending a white man accused of raping an African-American woman. In the face of unraveling evidence, the lawyers' own uncomfortable beliefs about race rise to the surface. Director John Dillon tackles Mamet's rat-a-tat language and sharp jabs in this confrontational comedy that skewers modern-day "polite" society. Race premiered on Broadway in 2009 starring James Spader and David Alan Grier. Learn More

The play is one of the very best and the performance was outstanding. However our seats were disappointing. I purchased price level one seats but the seats that were assigned to us were half way back the orchestra on the side and had we purchased at the box office, would have been classified as price level 2. We attend events at the Fox regularly and are familiar with the seating levels.

I had two tickets for the evening performance of Fiddler on the Roof in the orchestra section, not knowing where the seats were. The performance was excellent and I was very pleased that the seats were middle orchestra very close to the center.

- “One of the unforgettable stage musical creations of modern Broadway history." —<em>Variety</em>
In the little village of Anatevka, Tevye, a poor dairyman, tries to instill in his five daughters the traditions of his tight-knit Jewish community in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia.
Full of wonderful characters and rich in historical and ethnic detail, Fiddler On The Roof has touched audiences around the world with its humor, warmth and honesty. Its universal theme of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness.
The lush score by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick has been embraced as one of the best ever written for the stage with standards such as "Matchmaker," "If I Were a Rich Man," "Sunrise, Sunset," and "Do You Love Me?"
