Fiddler on the Roof is led by lead by six-time Tony Award-nominee and Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Award-winner Danny Burstein as Tevye, and Four-Time Tony Award Nominee Judy Kuhn as Golde (initially played by Jessica Hecht who was replaced by Judy Kuhn on November 22, 2016, for the last five weeks of the run). The production boasts a cast of 40 actors and an orchestra of 23 musicians and was nominated for three 2016 Tony Awards, including Best Musical Revival, Best Choreography (Hofesh Shechter) and Best Actor in a Musical (Danny Burstein). Additionally, Fiddler on the Roof took home two Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding Director of a Musical (Bartlett Sher) and Outstanding Actor in a Musical (Danny Burstein). Burstein was also awarded the Outer Critics Circle Award for the Outstanding Actor in a Musical.

Fiddler on the Roof recently received a Grammy Award nomination for the 2016 Broadway Cast recording in the category of ‘Best Musical Theater Album’. Fiddler on the Roof has only been nominated for a Grammy Award once before, which was in 1965 for its Original Broadway Cast recording. The 2016 Broadway Cast recording of Fiddler on the Roof also includes bonus tracks of cast members Adam Kantor and Alexandra Silber performing the cut song “Dear Sweet Sewing Machine,” along with 16 time Grammy award winning violinist, Itzhak Perlman, performing “Excerpts From Fiddler on the Roof,” arranged by iconic composer John Williams. This classic musical is rich with Broadway hits, including “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition.” The 2016 Cast Recording is now available.

A beloved theatrical classic from Tony Award-winner Joseph Stein, and Pulitzer Prize- winners Jerry Bock and legend Sheldon Harnick, Fiddler on the Roof is directed by Tony Award-winner Bartlett Sher (South Pacific, The King and I); choreographed by the acclaimed Israeli choreographer Hofesh Shechter; inspired by the original choreography of Jerome Robbins; and has musical direction by Ted Sperling.
