Fiddler on the Roof is a ghost story. It's set in a Russian-Jewish village that vanishes before our eyes — a village representing a way of life that vanished a century ago. Each time this tale of capital-T Tradition in crisis gets revived, places like the shtetl of Anatevka are hazier in our collective memory. Bartlett Sher's lovely and poignant new production, starring Danny Burstein, now playing at the Broadway Theatre, stages this act of disappearance and in doing so brings the plight of Anatevka's people closer to us.
Fiddler on the Roof has an open run at the Broadway Theatre. Click here to read Miriam Felton-Dansky's full review.
