Yiddish Fiddler On The Roof
Wed Nov 20 | 2p

Enjoy an afternoon on Broadway at  Yiddish Fiddler on the Roof. Directed by Oscar and Tony Award-winner Joel Grey, the rich Yiddish translation by Shraga Friedman adds new depth and dimension to the most well-known Jewish musical in the world. Don’t miss the beloved story of a community and its struggle to balance traditions and desires in a changing world.

After the show, enjoy a private talk back with cast member Bruce Sabath.

Yes, the show is entirely in Yiddish. There are supertitles in English on both sides of the stage throughout the entire performance that translate what is being said or sung on stage in real time. However, most theatregoers find they can follow most of the show without even having to look at them.
