Based on the stories of Sholom Aleichem, Fiddler on the Roof has a book by Joseph Stein, music by Jerry Bock, and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick. The classic musical tells the story of Tevye the milkman, who clings to the Jewish customs of Anatevka, his hometown in pre-Revolutionary Russia. As his daughters question these traditions and the world changes around them, Tevye is challenged to find a new way to learn and to love.

The original 1964 Broadway production, which played seven previews and 3,242 regular performances, won nine Tony Awards, including those for Best Musical and star Zero Mostel. Fiddler on the Roof was previously produced at The Muny in 2016, 2008, 2003, 1998, 1993, 1987, 1982, 1976, 1973, and 1970.
