THE SCREENING ROOM: Celebrating the Tony-Winning Musical Fiddler on the Roof (Video)
26 Feb 2013
The 2004 Broadway revival of Fiddler on the Roof opened on Broadway Feb. 26, 2004. In celebration of the Tony Award-winning musical, Playbill.com looks back at the piece with performances from various productions.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
