The National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene’s production of Fiddler on the Roof received a special visit August 1 when Grammy winner Barry Manilow stopped backstage to greet members of the company. The hit revival recently celebrated its one-year anniversary Off-Broadway after opening at the Museum of Jewish Heritage July 15, 2018.

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.

The creative team features Tony-winning set designer Beowulf Boritt, Tony-winning costume designer Ann Hould-Ward, choreographer Staś Kmieć, Tony-nominated sound designer Dan Moses Schreier, and Tony-winning lighting designer Peter Kaczorowski. Casting is by Jamibeth Margolis, C.S.A, and Zalmen Mlotek is NYTF's artistic director.

Manilow can currently be seen onstage at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre in Manilow Broadway, marking his return to the Broadway stage following an engagement in 2013. Manilow Broadway is scheduled to play a limited run through August 17.
