NEW: Fiddler on the Roof
at London's Playhouse Theatre
Tuesday 6th August 2019
£75.00 All seats
Tevye, a dairy farmer, is an old-fashioned man who finds solace in tradition. Like many fathers in the close-knit community of Anatevka, he has raised his descendants to follow the Jewish customs of his long-gone ancestors. The time has now arrived for him to find husbands worthy of marrying his precious daughters. As tradition has it, he must find the perfect suitable match. But in 1905 Tsarist Russia, this is easier said than done as a country wobbles on thin ice, just one bad incident away from a violent uproar, a new ear in which young people listen to their hearts and not their elders. Including the classic sons, ‘If I Were a Rich Man’, Matchmaker’ and ‘Tradition’ this Trevor Nunn production of the show transfers to The Playhouse Theatre following earlier sold out runs.
There will be time prior to the 2.30pm performance to find lunch. Seats at the theatre will be in the Stalls or Dress Circle – please check at time of booking. NB some Dress Circle seats have a safety rail in front, at eye level, which may impede the view slightly and are offered at a slightly reduced price.
