Drake, according to press notes, penned the musical "in an effort to honor a generation of heroes who have lived for years in silence about the struggles they faced in the 1940s. This amazing generation moved forward after the hardships of a world war and never looked back."
The new musical follows the struggles of four friends after the events of Pearl Harbor unfold.
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
