Description: The iconic musical Fiddler on the Roof was written in 1964 by Joseph Stein, with music by Jerry Bock and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick. It tells the story of the residents of a small Russian village on the eve of the Bolshevik revolution, who attempt to maintain family and Jewish religious traditions while outside influences encroach upon their lives. Featuring heartwarming songs like "Matchmaker, Matchmaker," "Sunrise, Sunset," and "If I Were a Rich Man," this landmark Broadway musical cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion.
