Great acting. Fresh, original roles created for well-established characters. Very nice. Kids a bit distracting.

Absolutely a must see! They carried the two and one half hours as if one hour had gone by. Enjoyable and well acted from start to finish! Beautiful singing, great production, worth every minute and penny!

This was my first time at a Woodminster event and I was impressed.

Parking ($5) was convienent. There was plenty of food for sale and there does not seem to be any rules against bringing in your own.

I saw the opening night performance,...continued

More Information


The universal story of tradition versus change is beautifully told in one of the most famous and popular musicals in Broadway history, Fiddler on the Roof. The tale of Tevye and his daughters, based on Sholem Sleichem’s short stories, is set in a poor Jewish village in Czarist Russia in the early years of the twentieth century. The themes are universal — tradition, family, love and marriage, resignation, regret, and optimism — and the characters are honest, funny, and memorable. Songs like “Sunrise, Sunset,” “If I Were A Rich Man,” and “Matchmaker” help tell this dramatic story in the best tradition of American Musical Theater.

The original Broadway production, with a cast including Zero Mostel and Beatrice Arthur, won 9 Tony awards, ran for 8 years, and was the first Broadway musical to surpass 3000 performances. It has had four Broadway revivals, a very successful 1971 film adaptation starring Topol, and continues to enjoy great international popularity.
