Fiddler on the Roof is the story of Teyve, his family, and the tiny town of Anetevka. Set in czarist Russia, the musical includes a long list of songs that have become standards, including "Sunrise, Sunset," "Matchmaker, Matchmaker'" and "Miracle of Miracles." Fiddler on the Roof is a classic of the American musical theatre. The story, which focuses on family, tradition, and a changing society, is moving, dramatic, and comedic. Danny Burstein, five-time Tony nominee, plays Tevye, the perplexed, savvy and caring husband and father.
