Why go and see it?

The timeless classic returns triumphantly to the West End, boasting a touching and poignant story about family values, and a score bursting with iconic numbers.

Direct from its sold-out run at the Menier Chocolate Factory, Tony and Olivier award-winning director Trevor Nunn’s ‘exuberant revival’ (The Telegraph) of the classic Broadway musical Fiddler on the Roof transfers to the West End for a strictly limited run. The Playhouse Theatre has been specially transformed into an intimate space which will envelop you in the beloved story of Tevye and his family. Get ready to enter the 'shiveringly intimate chamber musical about family' (The Times). Maria Friedman will play Golde, alongside Anita Dobson as the Matchmaker, Yente from 18 June.

Production shot

Featuring the iconic score including 'Tradition', 'Matchmaker, Matchmaker', 'Sunrise, Sunset' and 'If I Were a Rich Man', and packed with Jerome Robbins’ original Tony award-winning choreography, Fiddler on the Roof ‘bursts from the stage’ (Financial Times), bringing new life to one of the most beloved musicals of all time.
