Fiddler on the Roof

Experience Fiddler On The Roof - In Yiddish

Breaking tradition, the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene will perform “Fiddler on the Roof” in a different tongue.

Directed by Oscar and Tony Award-winner Joel Grey, the new Yiddish translation transforms the beloved musical, which captures the mindset of Jews in the shtetl at the turn of the 20th century. Enjoy a preview performance 7 p.m. July 12 at the Museum of Jewish Heritage. Tickets are $36. To purchase tickets or find more information, contact Roberta Caplan (212) 453-9446, or at
