Fiddler on the Roof has a book by Joseph Stein, music by Jerry Bock and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick; the musical is based on the stories of Sholom Aleichem.

“Set in 1905 in the tradition-steeped village of Anatevka, Russia,” Fiddler on the Roof, according to the Muny, “is a poignant folk-tale that tells the story of Tevye, a poor dairyman, and his five daughters. With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community, Tevye tries to instill in his daughters their cultural traditions in the face of changing social mores of Czarist Russia. Rich in historical and ethnic detail, Fiddler on the Roof is a cherished American-musical laden with happiness and tears.”
