Winner of nine Tony Awards and with a record-setting Broadway run, Fiddler has become an American classic. Tevye, the loquacious father of five daughters, fights to maintain his family and their traditions while outside influences encroach upon their lives. He must cope both with his strong-willed daughters—as each one’s choice of husband moves further from tradition—and with the edict of a tyrannical and unjust Tsar.

Reviews and Comment
Bob Hicks | Oregon Arts Watch [Review 25 Sep 2013]
“Yes, the cast is excellent, and the design’s intriguing, and director Chris Coleman, a man with a deep feeling for the pleasures and possibilities of the musical theater, keeps the long story clipping at a brisk and rhythmic pace.”
“Director Coleman and Kent Zimmerman, who reproduced Jerome Robbins’ original choreography, have made sure the set pieces (think bottle dance) have plenty of room to shine.”
Jonathan Frochtzwajg | Portland Monthly [Review 25 Sep 2013]
“Fortunately, like our daredevil violinist, Chris Coleman has more than managed ‘to scratch out a pleasant, simple tune without breaking his neck,’ doing justice to Fiddler with this faithful, tastefully staged, and capably performed production.”

The image of “the fiddler on the roof” has become so well established in our culture, it’s hard to remember that it is a relative newcomer to our vocabulary of symbols. However, beneath this modern incarnation of the rooftop fiddler, there is a tangle of ancient and sacred historical roots.More
