Fiddler on the Roof
Music by Jerry Bock, Lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, book by Joseph Stein.
Attempting to live a normal life filled with Jewish traditions in early twentieth century Russia, Tevye, a dairyman, is searching for appropriate husbands for his three eldest daughters - Tzeital, Hodel and Chava.
In a break of tradition, his daughters refuse to accept the wishes of the matchmaker, Yente, and their father. Instead, they marry men that they love.
Meanwhile, Russians are instigating terrible pogroms against the Jewish people in Russia, until, in the end, the Jews of Anatevka are forced to leave their homes and Tevye is determined to start a better life in a new land.
This is one of the most beloved musicals of all time.
