This special adaptation of the nine-time Tony Award-winning Broadway
musical, Fiddler on the Roof JR. follows Tevye the milkman as he tries to protect his
daughters and his way of life from a changing world. Created by Broadway legends
Jerome Robbins, Harold Prince, Jerry Bock, Sheldon Harnick and Joseph
Stein, Fiddler on the Roof JR. tackles the universal theme of tradition in ways that
reach across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion.
Set in the little village of Anatevka, the story centers on Tevye, a poor dairyman, and
his five daughters. With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community, Tevye
tries to marry off his daughters and instill in them a sense of tradition in the face of
growing anti-Semitism in Czarist Russia.
