The National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene’s hit revival of Fiddler on the Roof celebrated its one-year anniversary Off-Broadway after opening at the Museum of Jewish Heritage July 15, 2018. The production, directed by Oscar and Tony Award winner Joel Grey, subsequently transferred uptown to Stage 42.

“When Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish first premiered last summer for a limited eight-week run under Joel’s vision, it was a revelation to me and to audiences,” said producer Hal Luftig in a statment. “It was a show that moved people to tears (including me) and I knew it had to be seen by as many people as possible. I am so proud that our unexpected journey has us celebrating our one-year anniversary on Wednesday, and my co-producer Jana Robbins and I are committed to many more celebrations with this amazing cast.”

Fiddler is presented in Yiddish with English and Russian supertitles. The production, which marks the first time the Yiddish version of the musical has been staged since its world premiere in Israel more than 50 years ago, stars Steven Skybell as Tevye, Jennifer Babiak as his wife Golde, and Emmy nominee and Broadway veteran Jackie Hoffman as matchmaker Yente.
