Summary
Tevye is a poor Jewish milkman with five unmarried daughters to support in a village in Czarist Russia. With a sharp-tongued wife at home and growing anti-Semitism in the village, Tevye talks to God about his troubles. His people's traditions keep him strong when his existence is as precariously balanced as a fiddler on the roof

  • Originally produced as a motion picture in 1971
  • "Timeless tale about one man's special relationship with God, his family and himself ... The inspired cast, headed by Topol, are matchless as Tevye, Golde, their five rebellious daughters and the rest of Anatevka's villagers. They embody the pride, the sorrow, the humor, and the spirit of an unconquerable people." Produced and directed by Norman Jewison. Screenplay by Joseph Stein (adapted from his stage play)
