It’s been more than 10 years since a revival of Fiddler on the Roof opened on Broadway, so tradition (get it?) foretells that it’s time for another.
A new production of the musical starring Danny Burstein as Tevye will start performances in November 2015. Bartlett Sher will direct, with music by Jerry Bock and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick. Sher directed Burstein in the recent revivals of South Pacific and Golden Boy, for which Burstein was nominated for Tonys, and in the original production of Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown. Five-time Tony nominee Burstein is currently appearing as Herr Schultz in Cabaret.
Alfred Molina starred in the most recent revival, and Zero Mostel famously inhabited the role of Tevye in Jerome Robbins’ original production. The latest revival will feature choreography from Hofesh Shechter based on Robbins’.
